Giving Tuesday is the world’s largest generosity movement and it is happening today!!!


Johannesburg, South Africa (01 December 2020) – Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide.

Following the widely recognised shopping events; Black Friday and Cyber Monday, this year’s GivingTuesday will take place on 1 December. It will kick off the giving season by inspiring people to collaborate and give back – whether it’s your time, a gift or the power of your voice.

Last year, $518M was raised in 24 hours globally.

Giving Tuesday South Africa’s Laura Parker joins Good Things Guy Brent Lindeque to tell us why Giving Tuesday matters more now, than ever! Listen to the podcast below.

Meanwhile, meet Jo Black… a South African Afrikaans hipster who sings; who stands up at schools to talk about fighting bullying and who’s found an unusual love during the lockdown. Listen, as he talks to Brent Lindeque on Good Things Guy.

Jo Black has grown to become a household name as far as South Africa is concerned.

With his level of impact and influence on many lives in the country, the motivational speaker-cum-singer keeps waxing strong and setting records because of the great things that he’s doing.

On the problem of bullying, Jo Black – who’s started an anti-bullying initiative called BTG (Be That Guy | Girl) – says the problem is worse than we think. “Kids now have even more stress than we used to have at school. Now they’ve got all this pressure from social media…”

Jo Black joins our Good Things Guy, Brent Lindeque, on his latest JacPod podcast, to talk about things that matter to him, including his new Heroes Anonymous App; his lockdown ‘love’ and whether he’s been writing any new music.

Brent also opens up to Jo about his own primary school years and how he was bullied. Listen to the interview below.
