Giving Tuesday: What You Should Know

GivingTuesday is a movement that unleashes the power of radical generosity around the world.

Whether it’s making someone smile, helping a neighbor or stranger out, showing up for an issue or people we care about, or giving some of what we have to those who need our help, every act of generosity counts, and everyone has something to give. GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of radical generosity.

GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Since then, it has grown into a year-round global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

GoVA has worked with some fantastic organizations focused on doing good and we’d like to share those with you here:

The United States Veterans Corps

The US Veterans Corps states that they are a Corps of Military and First Responder Veterans performing “hands-on” community service with a mission deployment attitude! Their mission is to participate in community service projects & events in the military & civilian community. 

Skeletons For St. Jude

Skeletons for St. Jude was started by US Army Veteran, Jeff Robertson. He and his family have a passion for service and have leveraged the attention their Halloween decorations receive to benefit a cause they believe in and support. 

Military Missions in Action

Military Missions in Action‘s mission states that the organization is dedicated to assisting Veterans in need, members of all Armed Forces, and their loving supporting families. MMIA’s varied programs support veterans who need construction project assistance due to disabilities or sub-standard living conditions and our homeless Veterans.

Bottom Line

Giving is a simple idea: whether you’re helping someone directly or making a stranger smile with kindness. Showing up for causes and people you care about is an act of generosity we all can appreciate. If a cause speaks to you this year, please consider donating to a nonprofit organization like those we mentioned above. Their work is driven by doing good, and we believe in supporting that.


GoVA Inc. began in 2019 when our CEO and founder, Phil Jawny realized he could give back to the military community. Our mission is simple; we are devoted to being a trusted and credible resource for all military community members.
