Giving Tuesday: #DateAndDisrupt
BLK Donates in Support of SA Survivor Awareness
#DateAndDisrupt: A World Free
GivingTuesday also known as the “Global Day of Giving” is a global generosity movement that started in 2012 aimed at uniting forces for good through the power of both giving and volunteerism. During GivingTuesday, on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, over a 24-hour period funding is raised for organizations around the world to champion social causes and usher transformative community impact.
Acting on our global mission of bringing people together and enhancing meaningful connections, during the week of this year’s GivingTuesday Match Group brands BLK, Chispa & Tinder are teaming up with me too. International to promote safety, respect, and community action in support of sexual assault survivors.
These organizations provide resources, education, training, programs, and legislative advocacy in support of disrupting the culture of sexual violence and the healing of survivors. Learn more here:

Justice for Migrant Women: Justice for Migrant women aims to ensure that all migrant women are granted human rights through education, public awareness and advocacy that is aimed at the protection and advancement of migrant rights.
