Giving Tuesday: Ways to Give Back

Unselfie Newsletter Graphic - IG

So by now you’ve probably heard about Giving Tuesday (tomorrow, December 2!). You know that it’s an international day of giving and that it’s a celebration of generosity, but do you know how you can participate in it? While it’s ultimately up to you how you choose to partake in this exciting international movement, we at YVC would like to make it easy for you. Below we are outlining some ways for you to join in the excitement this year!

1)      Take an unselfie! Either print off the sign we’ve made, or write what you want on a piece of paper. There’s no wrong way to do an unselfie!

2)      Donate! Any donations received between now and 11:59 p.m. on December 2 will be matched by an anonymous donor, effectively doubling your gift! There couldn’t be a better time to give.

3)      Write to us! If you’re a current or former Youth Volunteer, Team Leader, parent of a Youth Volunteer, or just a general YVC lover, consider writing us an email ( or send us a letter (1025 Jefferson St.; Kansas City, MO 64105) telling us why you love YVC. Hearing from you helps us know what we’re doing right, and how we can best serve the community!

4)      Volunteer! It should come as no surprise, but we at Youth Volunteer Corps are huge supporters of volunteerism! If you’re a youth, see if your YVC program has volunteer opportunities this Tuesday. If not, check out, or contact your local United Way to learn about how you can get involved this Giving Tuesday!
