It was created by the organization 92Y with the proposal of being a counterpoint to the commercial dates #BlackFriday and #CyberMonday, and it is always on the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving. In Brazil, the first edition was held in 2013, under the name Dia de Doar, and since 2014 Brazil is part of the global network.

On December 1st, if you are going to donate, if your company, organization or community is going to do any donation action, publicize it on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn etc.) using the hashtag #DiadeDoar. The more you publicize, the more successful the campaign will be and the more people will be touched by your action! And, in addition, it will help promote the culture of donation in Brazil!
The Dia de DoarDay is promoted by the Movement for a Culture of Donation, a coalition of organizations and individuals who want to advance the culture of giving in the country. In Brazil, the Day of Donating is organized by ABCR - Brazilian Association of Fund Raisers.
Who owns the Dia de Doar?
The Dia de Doar movement is not a single organization. It belongs to everyone: individuals, families, civil society organizations and companies that want to support the initiative. Anyone who follows the principles of Donate Day can participate.
Can I use the Dia de Doar brand freely?
It must! Dia de Doar is a movement that encourages everyone to organize their own initiative. As long as they are aligned with the campaign, everyone can use the brand and materials available here on the website, whether to make a donation or to receive donations.
Can I use another hashtag, in addition to #diadedoar?
You can! You have complete freedom to create your hashtag, and build the narrative of your own Donate Day action. What is important is also to use the hashtag #DiadeDoar, so that your campaign will be integrated with everyone else's, and we will be able to measure the result of the Day of Donating across the country.
Can I raise funds for my organization using Dia de Doar?
Yes. In fact, you should! Organizations must effectively run campaigns to raise financial resources, promoting actions to request donations on Dia de Doar, so that individuals and companies can have support on Dia de Doar.
Can I donate on Dia de Doar?
Sure! That's the spirit! May everyone donate and, more than that, disclose that they are donating, using the hashtag #diadedoar, to encourage even more people to donate.
Do I have to pay anything? What do I have to give in return?
There is no charge for the use of the brand and materials, we just ask you to register the action (photos / texts / videos) and share it with us to put on social media, using the hashtag #DiadeDoar.
What are Community Campaigns?
They are campaigns carried out as part of the Day of Donating, but which do not aim to collect donations for a specific organization or project, but for a neighborhood, city or cause. In other words, in Community Campaigns, everyone is positively impacted, and not just one or the other organization. Examples are #DoaSorocaba, #DiadeDoarGramado and #DoeparaCulturaSP.
What is Minha História de Doação (My Donation Story)?
It is a campaign, part of the Dia de Doar, that encourages people to share their stories of generosity. At Minha História de Doação we want you to tell your individual story - not your family, organization, etc. The focus is on you, and it will inspire many others to do the same.
Can I donate for the Dia de Doar?
Yes. If you want to contribute so that what we promote has even more impact and reaches more people and organizations across the country, you can contribute to us. Write to firstname.lastname@example.org and talk to us.
What can I not do?
Use the campaign, logo, hashtag or materials for other initiatives that are not related to the Dia de Doar.
Can I run non-financial donation campaigns?
May also! After all, we will make a country more generous and donor with much more than just money. However, it is important to remember that civil society organizations need money for their operation, so if it is possible to provoke your network to donate financial resources, this will be very important for the organization you want to support! Enjoy the Dia de Doar and encourage financial donation!
Am I a company, how do I participate in Dia de Doar?
Create a campaign, in your company, using the Dia de Doar logo and supporting a social action. The more creative the better! If the company maintains a foundation or institute, we suggest that the campaign supports at least one organization other than its own actions. Give visibility to your Dia de Doar campaign and tell us how it went!
I am a student with few resources, how do I participate in Dia de Doar?
Donate your time and energy by organizing a campaign for other people in your network to donate resources! Search the Internet for other initiatives that use few resources (have you seen the "Free Hug" campaign?). Volunteer with organizations in your community. Ideas will not be lacking. We would like to read your experience, share with us: minhahistoriadedoação.org.br .
Why do you want to receive information about my campaign?
To post here on the website and on our social media and inspire more people to follow your example. The more inspired people, the greater the social impact we can generate together.
I'm from the press and I would like to do a story. Who do I talk to?
Please contact us at email@example.com or at (11) 3042-9693. This is ABCR's telephone number, which manages the day-to-day life of Dia de Doar.
Can I run my Dia de Doar campaign on the day I choose?
Every day is a day to donate. And you can start your campaign beforehand, and this is very common, precisely for the Dia de Doar to be the great peak, when the whole country will be talking about the importance of donating to civil society organizations.
What information would you like to receive about my action?
The Dia de Doar wants to inspire more and more people, engage them and, therefore, the more information the better! You can share with us photos, texts, testimonials, videos, your role (leader, supporter, participant), what was donated, how much was donated, if you have done it before, and if so, what were the previous results.
