Thank you to our kind and generous donors. This is the first year Filipina Women's Network joined #GivingTuesday, the social media-powered global day of giving. With your help, we raised $2,994.00 over the course of 8 hours!
Giving Tuesday is a charitable initiative that serves as a counter-effort to big holiday-fueled spending days like Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Largely fueled by social media, Giving Tuesday is an annual day to encourage the global public to give back to one's favorite charity or non-profit organization, through volunteering or financial contributions. In its fourth year, #GivingTuesday 2015 had 1.3 million mentions on Twitter, Facebook & Instagram, compared with 750,000 from last year. It raised nearly $117 million in online donations, a jump of 155% over last year. Source: NBCNews.com
