Giving Tuesday

Team up with LifeSmarts this Giving Tuesday


We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals.
Now, we have #GivingTuesday—a global day dedicated to giving back.

Make LifeSmarts your #GivingTuesday cause.

Help us make a positive impact on the next generation of consumers and workers to enter the marketplace.

What you can do:

  • Give a personal gift
  • Encourage others to give by sharing the LifeSmarts story with friends, family, and colleagues through your social media channels (See our #GivingTuesday toolkit for messages you can use and more links to help you involve your network!)
  • Ask your company or organization to give a generous gift

The need:

Today’s young adults are:

  • Graduating from college with more than twice as much debt than the previous generation of college grads
  • Spending more than they earn
  • Going into debt deeper and faster than their parents
  • Lacking basic knowledge of interest rates, inflation, and risk diversification

At LifeSmarts we help youth shape a brighter future by educating teens about personal finance, health and safety, their consumer rights and responsibilities, the environment, and technology.
