#GivingTuesday Trends Worldwide
The day that's all about giving is a big hit in the UK, US and around the world

GivingTuesday is taking Twitter, and the world, by storm again this year. The annual day encouraging us all to do good things for charity is marking its 8th year, and its second as the top trending item on International Twitter.

The campaign has been well supported on both sides of the Pond. In the US, as well as gaining public support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, personalities from across the country are taking up the hashtag #GivingTuesday, including Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton, Gillian Anderson and Captain America star Chris Evans to support the cause. In the UK, London's BT Tower has been advertising GivingTuesday on its iconic spire, whilst Thomson Reuters has shown a Giving Tuesday video on their Jumbotron in Canary Wharf throughout the week.

An added benefit for Americans in the UK is that the firm which champions GivingTuesday, Charities Aid Foundation, offer services specifically for overseas Americans who wish to make international charitable donations. Check out the Charities Aid Foundation American Donor Fund for more details.

We'll leave you with some of the big names who have been promoting #GivingTuesday via Twitter.
