#GivingTuesday

Did you overindulge on Thanksgiving, overshop on Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and then again on Cyber Monday? We have the perfect remedy for you. #GivingTuesday.

Eventbrite is proud to support #GivingTuesday, a new movement to celebrate giving and encourage more–and more thoughtful–giving this holiday season. We’ve seen the power that live events can have for nonprofits firsthand. So far, in 2012, over 30,000 fundraising events have been created on Eventbrite. In aggregate, these events have raised over $35 million for philanthropies so far this year.  We are truly honored to help these causes reach new audiences, find new donors and raise both funds and awareness.

Now comes the fun part. How can you participate in #GivingTuesday? Check out the local directory of fundraising events in your area for causes you can support by attending their events.  Maybe you’ll find an organization you’ve known about for years, maybe you’ll find a new cause to back. Either way, #GivingTuesday is an easy way you can give back and feel good about it at the same time.
