Share Hope and Give to Campaigns With Us on Giving Twosday, November 28th

By: Alex Shipley on | Comments: 1

If you're reading this, chances are you've got a heart full of generosity, ready to make a positive impact. If not, stick around and we might just turn you into one ?

So, here we are, at the threshold of Giving Twosday—the day where we dig a bit deeper into our pockets, wallets, and maybe even behind the couch cushions to pull out that spare change, all in the name of helping those who need it the most.

We, at GiveSendGo, have a soft spot for Giving Tuesday. I mean, the word "give" is literally in our name. And this year, we decided to put our own spin on things with “Giving Twosday”, taking the joy of giving to a whole new level. On November 28th, for 12 hours, we’re giving THOUSANDS of dollars away to verified Giving Twosday campaigns on GiveSendGo.

And we want you right there with us as we give, sharing hope through your generous donations and prayers, because we make a pretty great team! 

But you may be thinking, "Why give?", "I don’t have a lot to give,” or "My donation won’t make that big of a difference." Well, in the words of the Grinch, "WRONGO!" Even donations as little as $5 can make a huge difference. That’s what crowdfunding is all about - people coming together to make a collective impact. 

So, mark your calendars, set a reminder, and get ready to be a part of something truly special. Whether you're a seasoned giver or someone testing the waters of generosity for the first time, Giving Twosday is the perfect opportunity to make a difference.

Just head on over to, hover over the discover menu, click “Giving Tuesday” and give to one of the verified Giving Twosday campaigns found on that page. Or give to a campaign you already know and love!

'Twas the Night before Giving Tuesday

By: Brieya Wilson on | Comments: 1
T’was the last week of November And the turkey is done
Christmas season is coming, a time of such joy and fun.
The season of giving will soon pass us by,
It stops at the new year when healthy habits we try
First giving thanks, an american tradition
Helping mom and grandma make food in the kitchen
Ending by giving gifts to family and friends
Oh, how we love this season and don’t want it to end!
We skipped over a type of giving this time of year
A time to be generous, giving to others with cheer
In the last week of November, Giving Tuesday is the name
Changing the world by being generous is what it became
Give to a non-profit or a cause close to your heart
Make a difference! This is a great place to start
Let's be generous this whole giving season
No more excuses! You don't need a reason
Say yes this Giving Tuesday and continue to shine bright,
Be generous to all and to all be a light!

9 Ways to Promote Your Giving Tuesday Campaign

9 Ways to Promote Your Giving Tuesday Campaign


Giving Tuesday is the perfect opportunity to find a cause you care about and start a campaign to support it - maybe it’s for a nonprofit or a cause local to you.

Once you’ve created your campaign it’s time to share it! Below are some of our best tips to promote your Giving Tuesday campaign.


1. Share Your Campaign on Social Media

On your campaign page click the “Share Now” button to share your cause on the networks of your choice.

When sharing, describe the importance of the cause to you, what the funds raised will be going towards, and any other information you think would be helpful for people to know.

We always say - SHARE, SHARE, SHARE!

Don’t just share once. Share your campaign many times throughout the month of November. On many social media networks, you can share posts like these with various social media groups.


2. Use the Hashtag #GivingTuesday in your Campaign and on Social Media

To be sure your campaign is added to our Giving Tuesday page, add the hashtag #GivingTuesday in the body of your campaign description.

Throughout the month of November, GiveSendGo will be promoting our Giving Tuesday page (and the campaigns that can be found on the page) through email and on our social media channels.

When sharing your campaign on social media, also be sure to use the hashtag #GivingTuesday in the body of your post. This will help others who are looking for Giving Tuesday campaigns to support find yours easily.

Bonus: We love to give back, so this year GiveSendGo will be giving money away to campaigns on Giving Tuesday!


3. Share through Text, Email, and Other Messaging Apps

While social media is the most popular place to share campaigns, sometimes being direct is best.

On your campaign page click the “Share Now” button to copy the URL link. Then, copy the link into the body of a text, email, or message to share immediately. Message your campaign link to your loved ones and

4. Reach Out to Local Media

Reach out to your local news organizations (newspaper TV news, blogs, etc) about why your community would be interested in your campaign’s cause.


5. Ask Others Who Care About Your Cause to Share Your Campaign

When you created your campaign hopefully you formed a team of people (friends, family, co-workers, etc.) who care about your cause and want to share it.

Ask those people to share your campaign on their networks to increase awareness of your campaign.

6. Partner With Local Businesses

Many local businesses are excited to support local causes.

See if your church will host a fundraising night for your cause. Or, a local cafe, sandwich shop, or diner might temporarily name a food item after your fundraiser (ex. Marty’s Meatball Sub, Support the Battle Breakfast Combo, Catherine’s Carmel Cappuccino).

Have your church or local businesses donate the proceeds and percentages to your GiveSendGo campaign.


7. Create a Campaign Poster

On your campaign page click “Share Now” and then click “Print Poster”. You’ll then be able to share a simple poster already designed for you.

Or create your own poster and include the link to your campaign on the poster.

Then, hang your posters around town at a local cafe, church, community center, etc.

8. Send a Letter or Postcard

It may be old-fashioned, but who doesn’t like getting a letter in the mail? In your letter describe the cause you’re raising money for, why the cause is important to you, and where the funds will be going or how they will be used. Be sure to also include the name and link of your campaign.

You may choose to buy or design and print a postcard that shares what your campaign is for as well as the campaign’s name and link.


9. Make a Creative Image or Video

Did you know that campaigns with images and videos receive many more donations than those that don’t?

Create a video of you talking about your cause and why it’s important to you. Then add it to your campaign gallery or post it with your campaign link on social media.
