Facebook is expanding its Community Help features to make it for people to support local businesses and nonprofit organizations especially when the world is currently suffering from the pandemic.
Facebook on Tuesday announced that they will be adding features to help people find gift cards and vouchers to support local businesses, donate to local nonprofit fundraisers, sign up to become a blood donor, and find local job opportunities in Community Help.
The update is part of ‘Giving Tuesday’ charitable event which is normally observed on Tuesday after Thanksgiving in the US. However, during the COVID-19 pandemic, ‘Giving Tuesday’ has become an emergency day of giving which is called “Giving Tuesday Now”.
“People are uncertain economically whether they’re losing their jobs or not. This GivingTuesday is really about presenting them with many ways to give and donating money is only one of those ways,” said Asha Curran, CEO of GivingTuesday.
The revamped Community Help section is now live, said Facebook. Facebook and Instagram users have donated over $65 million to COVID-19-related causes since January this year.
