Giving Tuesday is here, and we suggest donating to Translators Without Borders. The holiday, which was created in 2012 to be celebrated the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving, aims to inspire people all over the globe to donate to organizations that make a difference. Show the world that you’re passionate about language, and all the ways it fuels our lives, loves, and livelihoods.
Translator’s Without Borders’ goal today is to raise $15,000 – 10% of their $150,000 holiday fundraising goal. These funds will be used to respond rapidly in times of crisis and provide on-going language support where it is needed most.
And today your donation could go even further — starting at 8am Eastern US Time / 2pm Central European Time, Facebook will double donations made via its platform. So, contribute to our ongoing Facebook fundraiser, or start your own #GivingTuesday fundraiser to motivate your friends and family.
People who speak marginalized languages need your help today to be able to access critical information they understand, and to make their voices heard.
