Ashoka has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and celebrate generosity worldwide.
Occurring this year on November 28, #GivingTuesday is held annually to kick off the giving season and inspire people to collaborate in giving back in impactful ways to the causes they believe in. In 2016, the fifth year of #GivingTuesday, millions of people from nearly 100 countries came together to make a difference in the world around them.
By giving a gift to Ashoka, you advance the work of social entrepreneurs like Julián Ugarte - elected as an Ashoka Fellow in Chile for his work to create an open innovation platform for youth to practice their own changemaking skills. Today, over 500,000 users are registered on his Socialab platform with 40,000 ideas submitted from 96 countries.
"I want you to know that my work has only just begun, and I will not divert my course or rest until I give over the best of me for a better world."
- Julián Ugarte, Ashoka Fellow
