#GivingWeekSG

Discovering the City of Good Together

27 Nov to 5 Dec 2018

 

Share your Time, Talent, Treasure and Voice.

Because we believe that little acts, when multiplied by millions, can make a world of difference.

 

The Vision:

Imagine a week where we constantly get opportunities to give – from the moment we start our day, during our commute, at work, at play, when having a meal, or shopping, even our conversations and activities have an element of care.

As the movement grows, we hope that Giving gets embedded in our DNA. Giving becomes part of our culture.

It becomes our way of life, that we are inspired to give, even without being reminded to.

Giving week is to giving, what valentine’s day is to love. It is a celebration of the spirit of giving, where we see brands, non-profits and people give and share their time, talent, treasure and voice to support any cause they are passionate about in all ways big and small to help us become a #CityofGood.

THE OUTCOME

A CARING PEOPLE

People give because they genuinely care about causes and want to support a better and caring society – to build a #City of Good.

A COHESIVE SOCIETY

Everyone gets together to champion and advocate for their causes. Where charities and non-profits drive awareness to solicit the public’s ‘love’.

A RESILIENT NATION

Beyond the week, giving becomes second nature. Caring is built into our DNA where we stand together through good times and bad.

THE BACKGROUND

Giving Week starts on the first day of #GivingTuesday – a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.

This year’s Giving Week ends on International Volunteers Day. Mandated by the UN General Assembly, it is held each year on 5 December. It is viewed as a unique chance for volunteers and organizations to celebrate their efforts, to share their values, and to promote their work among their communities, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), United Nations agencies, government authorities and the private sector.
