Welcome to The Big Give


In the spirit of “just because”. For the sake of generosity. In the name of random acts of kindness. Because we are lucky enough to live in a world where a lot of rad people do a lot of good things regardless of the fact that they are rarely thanked for their efforts. And because sometimes it’s just nice to make people smile. For all these reasons, we have created The Big Give.

TBG: The Internets First Ever Random Acts of kindness contest
The challenge: lavish the most extravagant, over the top act of kindness that you can on someone or a group of people who you think deserve to be spoiled.

The twist: you have just US$20 start up capital to play with.
Think you have what it takes to be the biggest giver? Go here to register for the contest.

You are here - TBG Blog
So you know about the contest, but what about the blog? This, where you are right now, is the space to go for all things TBG related. Home not just of the contest, but of the heart of TBG, every time you visit this blog, you can expect to be challenged and inspired to go out and find ways to make someone in your life smile. We have a stellar lineup of guest bloggers planned for TBG over the next seven weeks, so watch this space.
Play your part
TBG is NOT a spectator sport. The contest may not be for everyone, but the spirit of TBG is.
We want to know how you've been inspired by The Big Give. Send stories of little ways you've made someones day to GoAheadMakeTheirDay@gmail.com.

We're so excited to have you here, at this the first TBG. Look around, follow, register, or don't, but be sure to join in the conversation. We hope you enjoy the ride!
