GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement that unleashes the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and our world. Created in 2012 as a simple idea - a day that encourages people to come together and do good - this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity each year.
The Charlotte Business Journal and SHARE Charlotte teamed up again this year to host #BizGivesCLT! Annually, #BizGivesCLT recognizes Charlotte businesses who generously support Charlotte nonprofits in big, bold and creative ways in honor of #GivingTuesdayCLT which this year fell on December 1st!
"What does generosity mean to you?" This is the question we asked 10 Charlotte artists as they set out to create an original piece of artwork in honor of #GivingTuesdayCLT and dedicated to a local nonprofit of their choice.
Check out the complete series featuring each of our 10 participating artist's creations below! To meet the artists themselves and learn what each of these nonprofits needs most this #GivingTuesdayCLT, head over to our Instagram account!
