Giving Tuesday, the international day of generosity, gifting and volunteering, will be held on December 1 this year.

The day was established in opposition of Black Friday. Companies, towns, organisations and millions of people around the world are participating, taking care of the environment, presenting values and supporting a sense of belonging among employees.

During Giving Tuesday, participants become part of a bigger community that contributes to positive change.

Companies operating in Slovakia may participate and register at this link.

Those who want to participate and not break any pandemic measures, can try sending Christmas mail to seniors, take part in the collection of clothes, used electronics and other materials, or offer their know-how to NGOs and donate a certain percentage of their profit.

They can also prepare an online programme for their employees' children, organise a common activity in cooperation with the municipality or support local producers.
