Who are you? What do you do? How can I be involved? At YEAH, we get asked these types of questions all the time. Check out our FAQ for all the answers.
What is GivingTuesday?
#GivingTuesday™ is a movement to create a national day of giving to kick off the giving season. The fourth annual GivingTuesday is on December 1, 2015. In the same way that retail stores take part in Black Friday, we want the giving community to come together for #GivingTuesday. We ask that partners create and commit to a project for/on #GivingTuesday and then help spread the word to their networks.

Yes, If your interest in doing a placement with us please contact us at email@example.com.
