Giving Tuesday

22 November 2016


November 29 is a global day of giving. #GivingTuesday is about ordinary people coming together to do extraordinary things. Whether you bake good stuff, make good stuff, donate good stuff, tweet good stuff or even say good stuff ‐ whatever you do, we’re asking you to do good stuff for SSAFA this #GivingTuesday. You’ll be joining thousands of people in the UK in committing to doing good stuff all on the same day.

How are SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity taking part?

We are delighted to be joining in the fun of Giving Tuesday for the first time this year. We will be giving our time to say a massive THANK YOU to our extraordinary supporters, without whom none of our services would be possible. 

#GivingTuesday is our special opportunity to celebrate YOU, the donors, the supporters, the volunteers, in a number of ways. If you’re on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram check in with us throughout the day to see what we’re up to!
