The 4th day of Christ­mas

A giv­ing gang

The Australian Women's Weekly - - Initiative -

Giv­ing cir­cles are a grow­ing phil­an­thropic trend. They are es­sen­tially a group of friends, col­leagues or neigh­bours who come to­gether to sup­port an or­gan­i­sa­tion or cause. The idea, says Sarah Davies from Phi­lan­thropy Aus­tralia, is that, “col­lec­tively we can go a lot fur­ther than in­di­vid­u­ally. Giv­ing Cir­cles are about build­ing a com­mu­nity, a lit­tle tribe around you, of peo­ple who care about the things you care about, and col­lec­tively work­ing out what you can do to make a pos­i­tive dif­fer­ence.”
