2020 #GivingTuesday Contest
It's safe to say 2020 has been one for the books. We all need a time out and a moment to catch our breath. We hope to bring some extra smiles this holiday season with our annual #GivingTuesday Contest! Every year, #GivingTuesday has grown more popular around the world. People are sharing and contributing to the social needs that mean the most to them. This year, #GivingTuesday is December 1, 2020. On this day, the world will turn to supporting social intiatives surrounding medical, education, and community resources.
1) Create a fundraising page (either by yourself or with a team of peers).
2) Before #GivingTuesday, start sharing with your community that your page will be participating in a contest on #GivingTuesday. Let them know that is the day they can make a big impact for you.
3) On #GivingTuesday, start sharing and sharing...and share more (Facebook, Twitter, emails, text your friends, launch a beacon, etc.!) You have 24 hours to maximize the opportunity to win prizes, raise funds, and raise awareness. Be sure to keep an eye on this page to stay up-to-date throughout the day on the latest winners, mini contests, and more ! Trust us, you don't want to miss this.
Over the past few years, we have seen roughly $100,000 be raised through PledgeCents during our #GivingTuesday Contests. Each year, it's been getting bigger and better and we hope we can do that again this year for all of our fundraisers.
Through our partnerships with our philanthropists and organizations, we are once again thankful to invest money back into classrooms and communities on #GivingTuesday! Keep reading to learn how to join in our #GivingTuesday fun!
Don't forget, you can sign up for one of our partners in the Preferred Partner Marketplace... it literally takes ONE MINUTE to sign up, and we create the page for you :)
