Nystagmus Network joins #GivingTuesday 2019, the global day of generosity on 3 December
Nystagmus Network is pleased to announce that we’re one of the thousands of organisations taking part in this year’s #GivingTuesday campaign on 3 December.
#GivingTuesday began in America in 2012, as a way to give back after all the consumerism of Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
It was brought to the UK in 2014 by the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) with the key aim of encouraging people to think of others in the run up to Christmas.
There are numerous ways to get involved through donating to charity, volunteering or simply helping a friend, neighbour or family member.
Gráinne Mathews, Giving Tuesday UK Campaign Lead, says:
“Giving Tuesday is a chance for us all, no matter where we live or what we do, to help out a cause close to our hearts. This year we’re also encouraging everyone to make a #GivingTuesdayPledge and think of ways to have an impact year round, in addition to on the day itself.
That could mean giving a small monthly donation to a charity, or setting aside a couple of hours each month for volunteering. Together, all of these pledges will combine to make a world of difference to so many lives.”
The Nystagmus Network provides an education advocacy service for parents and carers of children and young people at nursery, school or college to ensure they have equal access to learning. We’d like to train another volunteer education advocate to help Frances and Claire with their enormous workload. Training costs £850. Please make a donation this #GivingTuesday to help us meet this need.
