#GivingTuesday 2021: Celebrating Generosity and Philanthropy

It’s that time of the year again! Coming up on Tuesday, November 30, 2021 is #GivingTuesday, an international, global day of generosity and philanthropy where individuals and organizations come together to give, connect, collaborate, and contribute to a cause that is near and dear to their hearts.

At RAINN, #GivingTuesday is a day when we celebrate the incredible work of the National Sexual Assault Hotline, and the survivors and their loved ones who seek to thrive after trauma. It is a day that we ask our community of supporters to bolster RAINN’s efforts to prevent sexual violence, help survivors move toward and into freedom, and help ensure that perpetrators are brought to justice.

This year, several generous donors made the commitment to match all donations dollar-for-dollar up to $20,000 — so your #GivingTuesday gift will have twice the impact. When you give, you are helping RAINN continue vital work to ensure every survivor knows that they are not alone, that it wasn’t their fault, and that there is healing after trauma. When you give, you are helping RAINN build traction and progress through federal legislation aimed to better support survivors. When you give, you are helping to ensure access to the National Sexual Assault Hotline and RAINN’s expert resources, and, you are helping RAINN in providing trauma-informed content, trainings, and programs. When you give, you are helping spread hope with your generosity.

RAINN is pleased to partner with WWE superstar, entrepreneur, New York Times best-selling author, mother and survivor Nikki Bella as this year’s #GivingTuesday ambassador. “RAINN is a place where a survivor can reach out for help and find a supportive person there to listen to them and help them on their healing journey,” Bella said. “For some survivors, speaking to someone at RAINN may be the first time they are able to speak about their trauma and begin to heal. RAINN's work is invaluable and I'm honored to support them."
