Giving Tuesday is a growing global movement focused on giving back. For the sixth year, the #GivingTuesday hashtag and global social networking movement will focus attention on raising awareness and funds for organizations doing good in communities around the world.

In a  $2 million pledge destined to make a difference for many worthy missions, including RainCatcher’s, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation will match donations made via Facebook on Giving Tuesday. Facebook responded by committing to waive the typical transaction fees on donations made through their platform that day.

We’ve described in the past how easy it is to set up a fundraiser using Facebook’s simple tool. Plus, Facebook has expanded options for quickly adding a donate button to any post, as described at this page.

Using their tools on this day is just as easy as usual and can make an even bigger impact with the matching gift from The Gates Foundation. We’d love it if you would participate on Tuesday! Together we can bring more clean water to more children and families and change lives.
