Worcester County Giving Tuesday Online Campaign Gains Momentum

An additional five nonprofit organizations have joined in the county’s inaugural “Shore Gives More Worcester Giving Day” to be held, Tuesday, Dec. 1st as part of a national charitable online giving effort.

A total of 23 nonprofit organizations in Worcester County are working together to collaboratively launch an online social media charitable giving campaign on Tuesday, Dec. 1st in coordination with national “Giving Tuesday” day. Donors may contribute online to one or more of the nonprofit organizations they care about all day on December 1st by visiting: shoregivesmore.org.

All participating Worcester Nonprofits will be listed on the website with direct links enabling donors to make immediate charitable gifts online to as many of the qualified nonprofits listed on the website as they wish. The Giving Tuesday online giving campaign utilizes two hashtags: #shoregivesmore and #givingtuesday on social media.

Hashtags are a way to categorize content and track topics on Twitter, Facebook and other social media platforms such as Instagram and Pinterest. Nonprofit organizations and donors alike can view trends and activities of the Giving Tuesday online giving by using these hashtags on December 1.

The Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore is helping to coordinate this Giving Tuesday campaign at the request of its nonprofit partners in Worcester County.

“We are pleased to support this great opportunity for families, businesses, community groups and students to come together for the common purpose of supporting charitable causes, to celebrate generosity and give,” said Erica Joseph, Community Foundation President. “We encourage everyone to visit shoregivesmore.org on December 1st and give generously to the causes they care about,” she added.
