‘Tis the season to be giving…
Christmas isn’t just a time to celebrate with loved ones – it’s also the perfect time of year to give back to those who are less fortunate than ourselves. And thanks to the Big Give, this year one donation can have twice the impact.
Here’s everything you need to know about getting involved – and how you can double your donation for your favourite cause:
What is the Big Give’s Christmas challenge?
The Christmas Challenge is the UK’s biggest online match funding campaign, which helps UK-registered charities raise funds for their cause. This year marks the 10 year anniversary of the Big Give and the campaign is set to be bigger and better with over 500 charities taking part.
They also offer the opportunity to double your donations – starting on #GivingTuesday.
Projects span everything from water and sanitation in Africa, and child poverty in London, to the arts, education and more – so you’re sure to find a cause that you are passionate about.
What is #GivingTuesday?
Set up in 2014, #GivingTuesday has become one of Britain’s biggest days for charities – raising millions of pounds for good causes every single year.
This year it fell on 28th of November. All you needed to do to get involved was choose to support any charity you want – in any way you want.
It was that simple.
And although you’ve missed #GivingTuesday this time around, if you’re still interested in giving back, why not make your money go further with the Big Give’s Christmas challenge?
How can I donate?
