#GivingTuesday is Here!

Each year on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, known as Giving Tuesday, people around the world donate to the causes that matter most to them.

Since 2012, the organization behind Giving Tuesday has promoted radical generosity, “the concept that the suffering of others should be as intolerable as our own.”

This Giving Tuesday, Language Magazine encourages readers to donate to Translators Without Borders (TWB), an organization whose mission is to eradicate language barriers.

According to TWB, “[Four billion] people are left out of vital conversations on topics that affect their lives: climate change, women’s health, vaccines, migration, and financial inclusion.”

To support TWB in their efforts to create communication channels that work for everybody, please visit https://campaign.clearglobal.org/holiday-giving-2021.

Donations help pay for things like multilingual chatbots, voice-enabled information kiosks, language maps, and other data-based tools.

This year, TWB’s fundraising goal is $100,000 and at the time this article was written, they had raised $28,641.95.
