Worldwide Day of Giving

June 15 celebrates the Worldwide Day of Giving. The idea was birthed in 2009 when Reed Sandridge lost his job at a nonprofit and decided to embark on an altruistic journey to honor his deceased mother.
It is a very special day that was started on this date in 2010 as part of the founding year of Reed’s Year of Giving.

The idea was simple: Give away $10 to a different person every day and learn a little something about each person along the way.
You can be a part of the Worldwide Day of Giving by doing one of three simple activities:
1. Give a stranger $10
2. Volunteer
3. Donate $10

On the Worldwide Day of Giving, you are encouraged to give $10, or whatever you can afford, to a stranger and then share the experience with the world.
Whether you give a little or a lot, it all adds up to make a big picture difference in the world.
