Giving with Sarah Clarke

We are approaching #GivingTuesday, so what better time to talk about Giving! Media Strategist Sarah Clarke, Dufferin Media , joined me to discuss on #GoalChatLive!

Created in 2012, #GivingTuesday has a simple purpose: it’s a day to encourage people to do good  – to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity. As we approach this year’s holiday season, needs are greater … not just to receive, but to give. Their mission is “to build a more just and generous world.”

Sarah shared why giving is so close to her heart, and offered ideas of ways to give beyond the monetary: becoming a board member, volunteering time, helping a neighbor, writing a review for a business or charity, seeing what’s needed in your community. And from a non-profit’s point of view: the best way for them to receive what they need is to be direct in their communication of what that is.

And, if you are a non-profit who needs to create a campaign or fundraiser to bring attention – and donations – to your cause, treat it the same way you would any business endeavor, Sarah says. Start with your goal in mind. Then, create a logo, tag line, and hashtags for your event, which could be socially distanced or virtual. Have fun, be authentic, and showcase how you help.
