International Day of Charity

International Day of Charity

The 5th of September is known as the International day of Charity. In 2012, the day was proposed by Hungary, with the goal being to create a universal platform for awareness about the importance of charitable giving.

The date (the 5th September) was chosen, as it is the anniversary of the death of Mother Teresa. It is important for individuals and organisations worldwide to use this as an opportunity to promote their own projects and encourage charitable activities in their communities.

Take a look at 5 different ways you can get involved in charity:

1. Organise a funding campaign:

If your company or you as an individual is passionate about a cause, then this is the perfect day to promote it.

2. Hold an event:

Celebrate the day by organising your own event on the 5th of September.

3. Reward good deeds:

Establish a symbolic award in your community for individuals and/or organizations who lead by example when it comes to charity, philanthropy, or volunteerism.

4. Help an existing charity:

If you’re not the type to host an event, then why not help out a charity in your area that you feel needs the help?

5. Join the conversation on Facebook and Twitter:

Make sure to post about what you are doing using the following hashtags: #charityday and #charitydayun.

Sometimes, it’s the small things that make a difference for a charity. If you are not able to help out financially, then think about lending them a helping hand. It’s a simple thing to do this International Day of Charity.

Helping the UN build a better world.
