#GivingTuesday: Become a volunteer

25 November 2016 Wesley Mission news

Come Tuesday 29 November is #GivingTuesday, a movement to celebrate and provide incentives to give. It will culminate with a global day of giving on the first Tuesday of December every year. This effort harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partners— charities, families, businesses and individuals—to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. Largely through social media, #GivingTuesday will inspire people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they celebrate and help create a better world.

Whether donating, volunteering your time, saying thanks to someone who's helped you or lending a hand, let’s work together and show the world how Australia gives. There are a number of ways you can get involved with #GivingTuesday.

The idea is simple but the impact is huge. No act of giving, no matter how small is ever wasted.
