Giving Tuesday, often stylized as #GivingTuesday for purposes of hashtag activism, refers to the Tuesday after U.S. Thanksgiving in the United States. Giving Tuesday was started by the UN Foundation and NYC’s 92nd Street with the goal of encouraging global charitable giving on social media.

Falling on November 27 this year, Giving Tuesday has gained global popularity since its 2012 launch, with online giving on #GivingTuesday 2017 increasing by 28% over 2016.* This year, Urban Engine and its affiliated partners are participating in a global movement to create an international day of giving at the beginning of the Christmas and holiday season for the city of Huntsville and beyond.

#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.

I liked that bigger ideas are being brought into Huntsville, instead of the same old stuff. And I liked the idea of all kinds of people coming together, just creating things.”

”My experience with CoWorking Night and Urban Engine is largely part of why I’m still part of the collective.

You can always be reactive, no matter where you are in life or business. But prioritizing your impact with the right intention is critically important... Anytime you see someone that is highly successful, it’s not an overnight thing. This is many years, countless failures, and relentless pursuit of getting that Yes-response.

It was hard work — doing the overnight hackathon was tough because we spent all day asking questions to real rocket scientists and software developers to create the ultimate solution. In the end, we’re just so happy to be here. I never really though this would have been possible for me, but we won the Huntsville challenge and now we are global finalists!
