Giving Tuesday


What is Giving Tuesday?

GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world.

GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past seven years, it has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

Wish Upon A Star actively participates in #GivingTuesday. You can give directly on our website by visiting our donation page. You can also give every time you order through Amazon by adding us as your preferred charity and using to place your orders.
