Giving Tuesday

What is giving Tuesday?

Giving Tuesday - make a world of difference strapline

Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving and celebration in support of the causes and communities that mean so much to us.

Developed in response to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, it offers an opportunity to check-in with what really matters to us, and how we can all make a difference to the lives and wellbeing of others.

This year, Giving Tuesday takes place on 30 November 2021.

How can I get involved?

The past year-and-a-half has been very challenging and, for many of us, completely unprecedented. But while we have had to close our doors, we have also opened our hearts and so this year for Giving Tuesday we encourage everyone to Give Back, Feel Good.

Here are three ways you can give back to the farmers and workers who have been so heavily impacted by the pandemic and the climate crisis, and have continued to grow the world’s food.

Give back… and get back! Donate £11 a month and receive a Live Fair box every four months, to help you live a little fairer, while helping hardworking farmers build a sustainable livelihood, at this time when COVID-19 is having a massive impact on their lives and income.  (Your first box will arrive mid February 2022.)

2. Give a monthly donation

Donate an amount of your choice, monthly, to help us support farmers and workers around the world who are facing the worst effects of the climate crisis.
