#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. Following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, this year’s #GivingTuesday will take place on November 27th and will kick off our giving season by inspiring people to collaborate and give back.

In 5 short years, the Rise Together team has traveled over ​200,000+ miles​, taken the stage over ​400 times​, partnered with over ​150 schools, and educated more than 150,000 youth​. In fall of 2018, Rise Together obtained their nonprofit 501(c)3 status to expand their efforts to ignite a youth-led movement that is saving lives. #GivingTuesday will provide a platform to engage individuals and community in creating a world where youth can be loved, heard, and inspired to live in hope.

This year, Rise Together is working to lift up the voices of youth through its “Future is Youth” campaign. By harnessing the voices of one million youth, Rise Together will not only support youth in being heard, but use their voices to develop new programs to meet their needs.
