Today we’re participating in a global day for giving back: Giving Tuesday. Giving Tuesday is a movement designed to shine a light on the holiday spirit of generosity.
Etsy is a powerful community, working to bring heart to commerce and instill craftsmanship and connection in the goods we make and buy. We’re honoring this community, one that continuously gives us the inspiration and motivation to do and make things we love.
In celebration of Giving Tuesday and our inspiring community, we’re donating $100,000 to be equally divided among four impressive organizations: Women for Women International, Room to Read, Direct Relief and the Nature Conservancy.
We selected these nonprofits for their exceptional work in four important areas: education, disaster relief, women’s empowerment and environmental protection. Perhaps more importantly, we selected each for their demonstrated transparency and operational efficiency, and an approach to philanthropy that genuinely aligns with the needs of those who receive their services.
Each organization operates internationally and shares our philosophy of providing local services on a global scale. Learn more about what they’re doing and contribute to their amazing work at etsy.me/giveback.
Giving comes in many forms. There are lots of ways you can contribute today through generosity of time, money, compassion and kindness. No matter how you choose to give, you can help us spread the word and encourage your own networks to get involved. With your support, we can show our collective power as a community.
Getting Involved on Giving Tuesday
Make a donation on our fundraising page or to a different organization you support.
Volunteer with an organization in your local community or share your unique skills through pro-bono work — platforms like Catchafire can help you find opportunities. Food banks and soup kitchens are typically in need of extra help during the holiday season, or think about visiting a community center where an extra smile can go a long way.
Involve your community and inspire them to spread the love
