Giving Tuesday – Small Ways to Make a Big Difference

  • Giving Tuesday Save the date red

Very often, supporting charities seems only to revolve around making a donation. However, raising money by taking part in fundraising activities is equally as important.

We need your help this Giving Tuesday to ensure we can continue to provide vital care and support to anyone affected by a blood cancer diagnosis.

Giving Tuesday, a concept established in America in 2012, offers an ideal opportunity to put small actions to good use and help us to make a real impact on behalf of those we support.

The simple idea behind #GivingTuesday is to encourage people, charities and businesses to donate their time, money or their voice to help raise awareness.

We’re asking supporters to join in the #Unselfie campaign – a selfie with a difference! By sharing a photograph of yourself holding a message board telling others about why you are passionate about supporting Leukaemia CARE, we hope to raise awareness of our support services and encourage others to get involved.

Alternatively, we will be encouraging people to ‘go green’ and join our recycling activities – by pledging to collect their used stamps, and help us to reach our goal of collecting 200kg of stamps by the end of the year. This is a simple, and free way of fundraising for Leukaemia CARE, but one which can really make a difference and can include everyone. Why not get your school or community group involved, and set yourself a challenge this Christmas time?

Finally, if you have a favourite local store, pub or restaurant, why not consider ‘adopting’ a collecting tin? Ask if they can display them and let the public do the rest.

‘Giving’ means so much more than just giving money, and that’s what the Giving Tuesday concept is all about. Absolutely everyone has something they can give – and we would like as many people as possible to give something to Leukaemia CARE on 2nd December.

For further information, please email fundraising@leukaemiacare.org.uk, take a look at our website, ‘like’ and share our Facebook page, and follow us on Twitter. Don’t forget to use the hashtag #GivingTuesday if you’re doing anything for a good cause this Giving Tuesday.
