Yesterday was #GivingTuesday, a global movement fueled by social media, where people and organizations come together to give back – to others, to community, to the world. According to the organization’s website, “#GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.”
Celebs were out in full force to help spread the word on the yearly efforts, many of them making statements on their social media. From Kerry Washington to Reese Witherspoon and Cara Delevingne to Mindy Kaling, the stars offered their support for various charities. In its fifth year, there was a flood of support both online and off.
On this #GivingTuesday, I would love you to consider @GirlsInc. They provide after school programs for girls across America that focus on self esteem, science and technology, and financial education. It's so important to provide positive messaging to young women as they grow up. Girls will heal the world! ❤️ #GirlsInc
More stars jumped on social media to support the cause.
Today, on #ThankYouWednesday, charities are thanking everyone for their giving hearts and sharing the tallies of the funds that were raised for each of them.
#GivingTuesday kicked #ThankYouWednesday off with a big thank you!
