#GivingTuesday UK 2014

Posted by Anne-Marie on November 7, 2014

This year, on Tuesday, December 2, 2014, we are taking part in a campaign that we hope will make history.  We are celebrating a day dedicated to giving, where charities, families and businesses will all come together for #GivingTuesday.



As the festive season gets underway, and after the sales of Black Friday and the online shopping boom of Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday is an opportunity to come together to show the world why it’s good to give, the simple idea behind #GivingTuesday is to encourage people, charities and businesses to help out a good cause. Whether it’s making a donation, volunteering your time or just spreading the word, #GivingTuesday is a call to action for everyone who wants to give something back.

We’re planning to be part of this celebration, and we need your help to spread the word about why giving to Get A-Head makes a difference.   There are a few things you can do to help us make #GivingTuesday a success;
