Everyone knows about Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but did you know about Giving Tuesday? Giving Tuesday, or #GivingTuesday as it is known on social media, is a day to give thanks and put your dollars to a worthy cause. In turn you help organizations, such as Project WeHOPE to raise additional funds for every dollar that YOU Give.
On December 2, 2014, hundreds to thousands of activists, families, businesses, community centers and students all around the world will donate online to their favorite non-profits in a 24-hour Online Event called #GivingTuesday. On this day, you have the opportunity to help Project WeHOPE raise additional funds through matching gifts and prizes simply by donating as little as $10.
This means more shelter resources to help the homeless, unhoused at at-risk adults in the San Mateo and Santa Clara Counties. It also means helping raise money for programs such as Dignity On Wheels, Project WeHOPE’s newest initiative to motivate adults to improve their lives one shower at a time.
#GivingTuesday is a time where your community and the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.
Will you give too?

HOW FAR WILL YOUR DOLLAR GO? LET’S FIND OUT
The Razoo Foundation has generously contributed $25,000 to be donated to nonprofit organizations taking part in #GivingTuesday in the Silicon Valley, San Jose and San Francisco areas. On #GivingTuesday, there will be two leaderboards that will award 1) top #GivingTuesday fundraisers, and 2) top nonprofit organizations on Razoo. The fundraiser leaderboard will be ranked by total donors, and the nonprofit leaderboard will be ranked by total dollars raised. So please help Project WeHOPE by not only donating on December 2, but encourage your friends, family and colleagues to contribute as well. As little as $10 is what we ask, but the more the merrier!

Grassroots Nonprofit Award: New This Year!
We will award $5,000 to the nonprofit with the most number of active individual fundraisers during #GivingTuesday. This award is designed to encourage nonprofits to reach out to their volunteers and board members, encouraging them to create their own fundraiser page for #GivingTuesday to share with their friends and family. This is a great way to build capacity and to allow supporters to tell their own personal story about how much the nonprofit means to them. See Official Rules

To be eligible, your tweet must originate from your nonprofit organization’s Twitter account and that account must be following @razoo. We will be monitoring Twitter to determine the final winners.
