BCause Foundation will mark #GivingTuesday (#ЩедриятВторник) on 1 December 2020
This year the celebration of generosity and giving is on 1 December (after the Black Friday). BCause Foundation, which is the official partner for Bulgaria of the world movement, supports Bulgarian organizations, companies, individuals and media to mark the day and spread the word about it.
Since 2012 #GivingTuesday/#ЩедриятВторник has been the day in which technologies and virtual communities help millions of people to give and share as well as hundreds of thousands organizations throughout more than 100 countries around the globe to meet new and old supporters. All together celebrate generosity and the changes it brings about in the life of all people and the environment. On this day online giving platforms will once again raise millions, and the organizations will open (at least virtually) their doors to volunteers and friends, in order to show their work and the results from it.
#GivingTuesday/#ЩедриятВторник in 2020 in Bulgaria
In Bulgaria we will mark #GivingTuesday for the fourth time – with a one-month online giving campaign at platformata.bg and at DMS17777.
We expect more than 50 companies and organizations to take part in the campaign.
12 organizations will be particularly supported in their participation at the #GivingTuesday Accelerator, which we organize for the first time. There they will receive training, an individual mentor and communication support.
This year our #GT2020 video is entirely dedicated to Bulgarian organizations and their devoted work with children, young people, old people, Bulgarian culture, education and environment:
We will once again publish Organizations and Companies Workbooks, where we will include advice what they can do to mark the day.
All information will be uploaded to http://givingtuesday.bcause.bg
