The international day of giving comes to Uganda in 2019. #GivingTuesday Uganda is the movement that connects you to non-profit, non-governmental organizations, local initiatives and all groups that are working for social causes in our country.
Using the hashtag #GivingTuesdayUG as an instrument to spread this idea in social media, it seeks to mobilize all citizens, families, organizations and companies to contribute to this global day of donation.
This day seeks to inspire people to GIVE more, and GIVE better.
Just as there are special days for other themes and celebrations, this is the day for causes, social organizations, and to celebrate human generosity.
