UIC Giving Tuesday!

Join UIC in celebrating a new day for giving back!

We've all heard of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, however, now there's a new day in the holiday season--#GivingTuesday--a day to give back! On Tuesday, December 3, people from all over will come together to show that the holiday season is not just about standing in line to get the biggest deals or maxing out credit cards to buy more stuff. It's about giving back to others.

#GivingTuesday is also about encouraging others to give back too. It's about starting a social media movement that celebrates and encourages charity--selflessness in the digital age. Every action YOU take to help someone else for #GivingTuesday and share socially illustrates why giving is important and encourages others to join in the spirit of giving too. 

UIC is excited to be part of #GivingTuesday 2013. After all, giving back is at the very foundation of UIC's mission as an educational institution. Students, faculty, and staff are embedded in the community—addressing healthcare disparities, advocating for social justice, disseminating new ideas, and transforming our society.

So how can YOU get involved and celebrate the power of people helping people? Find tips, suggestions, videos, and more information here.
