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.

 

#GivingTuesday was founded in 2012.  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.

On Tuesday, December 3, 2019, local businesses, individuals and families in Lubbock and the surrounding communities collaborated for a record-breaking, history-making #GivingTuesdayLBK campaign! Over $520,000 was raised for 59 local nonprofit organizations.

A little history:
