Get Ready for Giving Tuesday with Waypoint Writing’s Ways to Give Back!

If you didn’t know already, the following Tuesday after Thanksgiving is known as Giving Tuesday. Now, what exactly is Giving Tuesday?

Giving Tuesday was created to help nonprofits raise money. This holiday serves to offset the crazy spending for Black Friday and give back to other organizations. 

This year, Waypoint Writing encourages you to help give back to the community by celebrating this special day.

About Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement that focuses on encouraging people to do good. It was created in 2012 and has grown into a year-round global movement that inspires people all over to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

The whole idea is quite simple: make someone smile, help out a stranger, donate to a good cause. Overall, just do something good because the world needs a little more kindness.

Join the Movement

This year, Giving Tuesday falls on November 29, 2022. Waypoint Writing encourages you to join us and give back on Giving Tuesday! – and everyday for that matter! 

And remember, giving back doesn’t always mean spending money. 

There are so many ways that you can help out strangers, friends, or local organizations without spending any money. You can donate your time, your kindness, and a helping hand.

Just one small act of kindness can make a big difference. <3

This is why it is more important now more than ever to show your support and shop small this holiday season.

When I realized I had no answer to this question, I set out to find some general best practices for hyperlinking. A few months ago, we went over the basics of how to hashtag–now it’s time to find out exactly how you should hyperlink.
