‘Giving Tuesday’ year-end donation drive

December 1-3, 2015


Drive ended Dec 3rd, 2015


Thanks to all who donated!


Since its inception in 2012, Giving Tuesday has been celebrated across the globe as a day to give back: whether it be through donations, fundraising, volunteering your time and expertise, or simply by calling others to support a particular cause or initiative.

In 2015 is joining forces with Pieter Beens, a Dutch translator and copywriter, as well as a member since 2011, to invite the entire translator community to join the #GivingTuesday movement. Donations for the site's year-end drive will be accepted from December 1st to the 3rd, and all proceeds will benefit the following non-profit organizations:


SOS Children's Villages works to prevent family breakdown and care for children who have lost parental care, or who risk losing it. They work with communities, partners and states to ensure that the rights of all children, in every society, are respected and fulfilled.

Concern Worldwide implements emergency response programs primarily in the world’s poorest countries, has been a leader in health and nutrition issues, and has been on the forefront of helping communities develop resilience to high-impact climate extremes.

Books For Africa collects, sorts, ships, and distributes books to students of all ages in Africa. They remain the largest shipper of donated text and library books to the African continent, shipping over 34 million books to 49 different countries since 1988.
