Thank you for Sharing Kindness for Giving Tuesday!
Kindness comes in many forms. Whether you give financially, by donating goods, or sharing your time, you make the world a better place when you help others.
Giving Tuesday was created as an annual day to give back, following the hustle and bustle of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The Columbus Foundation is proud to offer central Ohioans these easy and effective ways to share kindness on this global day of giving.
Whether donating to our Gifts of Kindness Fund, providing toys to brighten a child’s holiday, or donating essentials to help families keep their beloved pets, Giving Tuesday is an opportunity to help others and make a difference in our remarkable community!
Thank you for sharing kindness in celebration of Giving Tuesday. There are still opportunities to give throughout the end of the year!
Opportunities for Kindness:
