#GivingTuesday

This #GivingTuesday we’re celebrating the people and businesses who are making Camden a fairer place by #GivingInCamden.

At Camden Giving we believe that everyone has something to give - be that time, skills or money - and we channel those resources to small charities that are tackling local issues: poverty, homelessness, loneliness and inequality. And thanks to you that collective effort is helping over 22,000 local people.

We want you tell everyone why you give in Camden, so here’s how:

  1. Download and print our #GivingInCamden hashtag poster using the button below.

  2. Take an Selfie, or an Un-Selfie, using the poster.

  3. Share it on social media using the hashtags #GivingInCamden and #GivingTuesday and tell everyone why you give/volunteer in Camden.

  4. Don’t forget to tag us. - And we’ll send a little thank you to our favourites.
