International Day of Charity

September 5, 2015

International Day of Charity

International Day of Charity was first declared in 2012 by the United Nations General Assembly. The International Day of Charity awareness day now takes place on September 5th every year. It’s a great day for businesses large and small to raise awareness of charities that they support.

Fund raising and awareness days are used to mark the International Day of Charity. In 2014, the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge used the day to raise awareness of ALS and the charities fighting for better understanding and researching for a cure.

Poverty persists in all countries of the world, ‎regardless of their economic, social and cultural situation, particularly in developing countries.

In recognition of the role of charity in alleviating humanitarian crises and human ‎suffering within and among nations, as well as of the efforts of charitable organizations ‎and individuals, including the work of Mother Teresa, the General Assembly of the ‎United Nations in its resolution A/RES/67/105PDF document designated the 5th of September, the ‎anniversary of the death of Mother Teresa, as the International Day of Charity.‎

On this International Day of Charity, the United Nations invites all Member States and all international and regional organizations, as well as civil society, including non-governmental organizations and individuals, to commemorate the Day in an appropriate manner, by encouraging charity, including through education and public awareness-raising activities.

How Small Business can support the International Day of Charity

International Day of Charity

International Day of Charity

Many businesses have a designated charity that they support. It’s a great way to raise awareness about a charity or cause that is important to small business owners, employees or a charity that works with the target audience of the business.

If you don’t already have a designated charity that your business supports, you can choose one and International Day of Charity is a great time to make an announcement. To maximise effectiveness, you should have a marketing strategy or public relations plan in place to communicate your decision and reasons for supporting the charity.

For more information about selecting a suitable charity to support or how to maximise the effectiveness of supporting a charity through your business, please email info@awarenessday.co.uk and we’d be delighted to help.
