Giving Tuesday: Americans do 8 good deeds a month

Cool Story - Giving Tuesday: Americans do 8 good deeds a month

Americans are looking forward to spreading the holiday cheer and giving back to their communities after yet another year of battling with the COVID-19 outbreak. According to a recent survey of 2,000 Americans, 70% believe that this is the best time of the year to volunteer. The survey does show that the typical American performs eight good deeds per month, for a total of 94 in a single year, even when it's not the holiday season.

The survey, which was carried out by OnePoll for Vitamin Angels on behalf of Giving Tuesday, also revealed that 62% of respondents planned to donate at least $100 more by the end of 2021, with 65% of respondents setting a goal of giving more overall.

Given that 44% of people intend to make charitable contributions this Giving Tuesday, they may shortly reach their goal. 52% of Americans say they would like to contribute more to their community but find it difficult to do so.

More than anything, 72% of respondents claim that nothing makes them happier than helping others. Because they think it's the right thing to do, four out of five Americans support assisting others. According to the study, those who perform good deeds regularly are actively kind to strangers (55%), recycle (55%), or pick up trash or litter in their community (49%).

How do individuals give back?

Many responders provided touching descriptions of the most impactful way they had helped in the previous year. One person related how they went to pick up their takeout food only to offer it to a nearby homeless family instead of keeping it for themselves. Another respondent remembers rescuing a pregnant woman who was in danger from her partner.

When the pandemic hit hard, some Americans opened their wallets to pay their neighbor's rent or even their neighbor's medical bills. Other Americans claim to have spent the year giving money to their favorite causes, and a third said they frequently donate their time at nursing homes to spend the holidays with the elderly.

Giving Tuesday is a fantastic opportunity to support your local community.

When choosing a charity to give directly to, 69% prefer to support organizations that work locally, and 60% are more inclined to support organizations that assist children.

According to Vitamin Angels' founder and president Howard Schiffer, women and children are frequently the most vulnerable members of our communities, and the ongoing pandemic has made this even more apparent. "It's fantastic to see that many respondents — 60% — plan to make donations this holiday season to organizations that support children and have a significant positive impact on their lives."

People give to charities on average of $400 per year, and 72% of them donate to three or more organizations. More than a third of people who donate to charities say they have already given more this year than they did last (37%).

It's nice to see that, when conducting their holiday shopping this season, 65% of respondents thought it's important to consider charity and chose to purchase from brands that give back, Schiffer continues. Because many charities have partners who match gifts made over the holiday season, now is a wonderful time to maximize the impact of your donation.
