What is #GivingTuesdayNow?
#GivingTuesdayNow is a new global day of giving and unity that will take place on May 5, 2020 – in addition to the regularly scheduled Dec 1, 2020 #GivingTuesday – as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19. The original #GivingTuesday happens on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday (November 27th this year). Kicking off the giving season, it has grown exponentially since it began in 2012. In 2017 $300,000,000 was raised online on #GivingTuesday for thousands of nonprofits.
Why is it a big deal?

Plus Big Top Chautauqua has a $6 million economic impact on our area!
