With global donations on the rise, it’s no surprise that Giving Tuesday has grown substantially in popularity from its inception in 2012. We’re talking 125% growth in the first year and averages between about 40% - 68% increase in donation every year since.According to the Nonprofit Source report on Giving Tuesday, more than 150 countries participated last year, raising $380 million in online donations, up from $106 million in 2017. That’s huge - and it’s just the online donation stats!Why? Simply put, people like to give back. We enjoy thinking about the smiling faces that are being impacted, even if they never actually get to see them.Collectively, people realize making others feel better is an important part of life.
