About #GivingTuesday

We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 3, 2019, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world came together for one common purpose: To celebrate generosity and to give.


Lubbock nonprofit Alström Angels, in partnership with The Community Foundation of West Texas, brought the #GivingTuesday movement to the South Plains in 2015 as a community transformation project to benefit all charities serving Lubbock and West Texas citizens. #GivingTuesdayLBK is a day dedicated to bringing West Texas together to celebrate generosity and to make giving history for local charities by giving big.

#GivingTuesday was founded in 2012 by New York’s 92nd Street Y in partnership with the United Nations Foundation. Together, a team of influencers and founding partners launched a global movement that has engaged over 30,000 organizations worldwide.
