Giving Tuesday: Gauging the Impact
To this date, crowdfunding remains one of the most revolutionary ideas in charity. The way small donations snowball and help collectors achieve the desired charity objective in a brief period is simply remarkable. Giving Tuesday serves as yet another reminder of this glorious phenomenon. The collective empathy eventually translates into donations worth billions of dollars all around the globe every year. With the help of proper scheming and planning, organizations can provide support and relief to a massive number of people every Giving Tuesday. It sounds a little improbable, but it happens everywhere, every year! The fact that this event is celebrated in at least 75 countries (as of 2021) speaks volumes about its impact!
How Can You Participate?
There are multiple ways in which you can become a part of a Giving Tuesday event. Yes, financial charity is the best thing to do in terms of its impact on people. But if you can’t donate money, it doesn’t mean that you cannot share the spirit of generosity that warms people’s hearts every Giving Tuesday. For example, how about signing up as a volunteer for a relief camp? Sometimes, a helping hand can make the most significant difference! Or how about sharing the spirit of Giving Tuesday with your friends and family and on different social media platforms? The more you talk, the more people will follow in your lead! Also, you can raise your voice for any just causes that you believe in but have been silent about them for now. Justice is a form of the relief itself! And sometimes, even a simple word of acknowledgment does the trick as well! Remember the time when we all clapped for healthcare professionals and workers? Now that was one remarkable moment in which we all echoed our support for frontline workers in unison!
Healthcare: A Sector That Needs Most Attention Right Now!
One of the critical lessons that the COVID-19 pandemic has taught us: life will go on only if we prioritize healthcare. The rest of the things can wait. We have seen some massive injections in the healthcare sectors all over the globe post-pandemic. But one cannot expect governments to carry all the burden! Society has to pitch in as well. Hence, on days like Giving Tuesday, we must not refrain from chipping in whatever manner we can to support our healthcare systems. Especially in underdeveloped countries like Pakistan, it is the need of the hour to support administration so that life resumes to normal. Events like Giving Tuesday that have gone global in the last few years provide us with a perfect opportunity in this regard. Any small or large contribution, a dime, or diamond can make a massive difference! So don’t let the magnitude of donation dampen your spirit of generosity!
Healthcare Donations on Giving Tuesday 2021
What kind of donations can you make on a Giving Tuesday? Well, your options are pretty diverse as far as the healthcare sector is concerned. For example, you could visit a hospital and donate essential personal protective equipment to the healthcare staff, medicines to the patients, or some flowers and chocolates to uplift the mood. You could also give some tokens of appreciation to the healthcare professionals to acknowledge their services. But if you are thinking about something bigger than this, well, donating to NGOs and INGOs that raise funds to support underprivileged patients will probably be the best thing to do. One trust organization that you can contribute to is Transparent Hands.
Donate to Transparent Hands
Transparent Hands is the largest technological platform for crowdfunding in the healthcare sector of Pakistan. It offers a complete range of free healthcare services, including medical and surgical treatments, medical camps, and telehealth facilities, to the underprivileged community of Pakistan.

They could select any patient, fund the treatment, and receive regular feedback and updates until the patient has recovered completely.
That’s all for now! We have to wrap up things for now because of space limitations. Giving Tuesday is yet another reminder that the privileged owe the underprivileged. Some of you may think that it is just another form of charity, but it is much more than that in reality. We are talking about a day here that awakens our collective sympathy and empathy very effectively. Undoubtedly, the feelings of compassion don’t ebb away in just one day! So, on an optimistic note that may the Giving Tuesday 2021 rekindle the spirit of generosity in all of us, we bid you farewell from this space!
