What is #GivingTuesday?
As the festive season gets underway, the simple idea behind #GivingTuesday is to encourage people and businesses to “give” to charities on Tuesday 2 December 2014. #GivingTuesday follows the sales of Black Friday and the on-line shopping boom of Cyber Monday. After spending a lot of money on ourselves and loved ones, it is time to contribute to a cause close to our heart. #GivingTuesday is a growing global movement now spanning five continents!
Why give to Brake on #GivingTuesday?
There are five people killed on UK roads every day. Giving to Brake on #GivingTuesday will help fund our vital road safety campaigns to stop these deaths and injuries from happening. It also funds our services helping bereaved and injured families.
