Giving Tuesday returns on 28 November

The fourth annual Giving Tuesday will take place this year on Tuesday 28 November. The event, marked in a growing number of countries, promotes giving money, time or thanks for charities.

This year’s campaign, promoted by Charities Aid Foundation, was launched in London at the offices of Royal Bank of Scotland, one of the campaign’s original corporate supporters.

CAF’s CEO Sir John Low, recently knighted in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List, described the day, now marked in 98 countries around the world, as the day for “doing good stuff”.
