Giving Tuesday

On November 28, 2023, we’ll unite for a worldwide celebration of generosity. GivingTuesday is an opportunity for people around the world to come together through generosity in all its forms by sharing acts of kindness and giving their voice, time, money, goods, and advocacy to support communities and causes. It’s the perfect time to tell your donors why you are plunging this year – for the athletes and Unified® Teammates of Special Olympics Maryland!
