#GivingTuesday is a global giving movement that has been built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses and communities in all 50 states and in countries around the world. This year, #GivingTuesday falls on November 28. #GivingTuesday harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partners to transform how people think about, talk about, and participate in the giving season. It inspires people to take collective action to improve their communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they believe in, and help create a better world. #GivingTuesday demonstrates how every act of generosity counts, and that they mean even more when we give together.
92Y-a cultural center in New York City- conceptualized #GivingTuesday as a new way of linking individuals and causes to strengthen communities and encourage giving. In 2016, the fifth year of #GivingTuesday, millions of people in 98 countries came together to give back and support the causes they believe in. More than $177 million was raised online to benefit a tremendously broad range of organizations, and much more was given in volunteer hours, donations for food and clothing, and acts of kindness.

If you choose to donate your used goods, such as household items, clothing and electronic accessories to Goodwill this #GivingTuesday, they will be sold in one of our 17 Goodwill stores and boutiques and the revenue is used to create employment, job training programs and support services for people with disabilities and our nation’s veterans. On #GivingTuesday, November 28th, please consider making a donation to Ohio Valley Goodwill at any one of our Attended Donation Centers in the Greater Cincinnati area.
