#GivingTuesday (December 3) by UDiON Foundation

Join the Global Movement!

Everyone knows about the #BlackFriday and #CyberMonday. Now help me spread the word about #GivingTuesday……………..#RadwanChowdhury

To Love without condition,
To talk without intention,
To give without reason,
And to care without expectation…....

Every day, children die needlessly from preventable causes – and they don't have to. UDiON Foundation takes proven, low-cost methods that save children's lives and makes them available to the most vulnerable, hardest-to-reach children.

We have a day for giving thanks.
We have two for getting deals.
It’s time to have a day for giving back.

What is #GivingTuesday?
#GivingTuesday is a movement to create a national day of giving to kick off the giving season added to the calendar on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday. In the same way that retail stores take part in Black Friday, we want the giving community to come together for #GivingTuesday. We ask that partners create and commit to a project for/on #GivingTuesday and then help spread the word to their networks.

How did #GivingTuesday start?
New York’s 92nd Street Y was the catalyst and incubator for #GivingTuesday, bringing the expertise of 139 years of community-management to the project and providing #GivingTuesday a home. The United Nations Foundation joined as partners, bringing their strategic and communications clout to the project. An amazing team of influencers then offered their ideas, contacts and wisdom to help shape and improve the concept. A powerful list of corporations and non-profits agreed to be founding partners, helping spread the word and committing to their own #GivingTuesday initiatives. Since then, countless organizations, friends and leaders have all added their support and talents to make #GivingTuesday a reality.

Did #GivingTuesday make a difference last year?
In 2012, more than 2,500 recognized #GivingTuesday partners from all 50 states of the United States. The collective efforts of partners, donors and advocates helped fuel a marked increase in charitable giving on GivingTuesday.

#GivingTuesday

Dear Friends;

Thank you for your interest in UDiON Foundation. Last week we told you about open fundraising challenge. We are excited about this awesome opportunity to earn a permanent spot and a chance to access GlobalGiving’s international network of donors, foundation and corporate partners, and innovative fundraising tools.

But we can’t do this alone! We need your help. UDiON Foundation still needs 18 donors and still need to raise $3720.00 by December 29th, 2013 to earn a permanent spot.

Today is a special day of national #GivingTuesday, any amount donated today by midnight may be doubled by matching funds.

Please make your tax deductible donation to help us succeed in open challenge goal at:
www.globalgiving.org/projects/ensuring-safety-of-garments-workers-in-ban...

We’re also going to need your help spreading the word! Please share this opportunity with your friends and family!

We look forward to sharing the program’s success with you. Thank You, as always, for your continued support!
