What is #GivingTuesday?
#GivingTuesday (29th November 2016) is a global day of giving. After the sales of Black Friday and the online shopping boom on Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday is an opportunity to come together and give something back.
2016 is the third year that local businesses and members of the public will come together to support us and our community. This year our #GivingTuesday campaign will raise funds and awareness of the 1 in 5 children in Milton Keynes who are living below the poverty line*.
1 in 5 Children in MK living below the poverty line
MK Community Foundation will use all donations to make grants to projects that are tackling the effects of child poverty in Milton Keynes. The wellbeing of a child's early years has a significant impact on their long-term education, job prospects and health. With Milton Keynes thriving, we believe it's important to do all we can to ensure our most vulnerable children are not left behind.
