Giving Tuesday follows Black Friday and Cyber Monday, inspiring millions around the globe to give back to causes that matter to them. This year it takes place on Tuesday, December 3, 2019.
What is #GIVINGTUESDAY?
Celebrated on the Tuesday following U.S. Thanksgiving, and fueled by the power of social media and collaboration, GivingTuesday inspires millions of people across the globe to show up and give back to causes and issues that matter to them. The goal is to create a massive wave of generosity that lasts well beyond that day, and touches every person on the planet.
How can you get involved?
It’s easy! Of course the option to donate money or time is always there, but something as simple as a small gesture of kindness puts you in the spirit of the day – AND THE SEASON!
Engage your donor base
A simple postcard, a flyer to hand out at upcoming events, an info card insert or sticker added to your upcoming mailer… there are so many ways to engage your donors, boost your reach, and inform them of the great work going on at your organization. Put up a pop-up banner or put out a yard sign to increase awareness of your nonprofit’s goals. Contact us today to add a print element to your #GivingTuesday campaign.
After all, multiple sources show* an increase in engagement of your audience when a printed piece is combined with online efforts. Something to keep in mind for Giving Tuesday, your year-end giving outreach, and fundraising efforts in the New Year! Metropolitan has so many services that can help you promote your cause and expand your exposure. Wearables and promotional items, posters and postcards, signs, stickers, bookmarks, mailers… we are here for you!
Thank your volunteers
There’s no better time to say THANK YOU to those who regularly devote their time and passions to your organization, than #GivingTuesday! We have a variety of paper selections and can help you choose just the right stationery for a special thank you card. Nothing communicates true appreciation more than a special thank you note. Pair it with a customizable promo item like a coffee mug or tote bag to express your gratitude.
