On a Positive Note: #GivingTuesdayNow Promotes Generosity Amid Covid-19

With the impact of the Covid-19 epidemic reaching into every corner of society, non-profit organizations have faced a deluge of challenges: more people are in need of food and support after losing jobs; the volunteers who often staff and support many organizations are shut at home or have fallen ill themselves; cultural organizations have had to close museums and centers and cancel programs and performances, resulting in the loss of revenue.

In response, GivingTuesday, the organization that holds the annual "GivingTuesday" global day of giving on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, has declared today "Giving Tuesday Now" to inspire and encourage people to find a way to support their neighbors, their communities, and the organizations that are important to them, in any way that they are able. Jamie McDonald, chief strategy officer of GivingTuesday, talks about ways people can support the organizations they care about.
