St. Vincent’s Medical Center Foundation will join #GivingTuesday, a first-of-its-kind effort to transform how people think about, talk about, and participate in the giving season.
Giving Tuesday will take place annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, which is Dec. 2 this year.

Shelton-StVGiveTuesday2The goal is to leverage the power of social media to create an international moment around the holidays dedicated to giving — similar to how Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become days that are synonymous with holiday shopping.

On Dec. 2, members of the St. Vincent’s community — including doctors, nurses, patients, supporters and survivors — are being asked to change their social media profile pictures to images that share their inspiration for giving and encourage their friends and families to support the St. Vincent’s Medical Center Foundation.

About #GivingTuesday, the foundation

Seeing an opportunity to channel the generous spirit of the holiday season, a group of friends and partners — led by the 92nd Street Y in New York City — have come together to inspire action around charitable giving.

Giving Tuesday is intended is to inspire people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities; give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they support; and help create a better world.

With the help of the United Nations Foundation and other founding partners, more than 10,000 organizations now have joined the #GivingTuesday movement.
