Why Friday?

Fact: Friday is the least productive day of the week.*

One day, we thought:

What if we used those unproductive Friday hours to do something good for the community and team spirit? A few months later, the first Social Friday was born.

Upcoming Dates:

⚠️ Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all 2020 activities are postponed. We look forward to continuing our efforts in 2021. Stay tuned until then.


Social Friday happens four times a year—once each quarter. We choose set dates on which 100s of companies and organizations unite and host initiatives in their neighborhoods.

Be Rewarded

Helping others is great, isn’t it? But don’t just do it for the local community. Do it for your team spirit and do it for your very own personal experience.

Thomas Schwabl,

It is an honor to be part of the narrative that Social Friday writes. I hope that all organizations and companies will take part in this valuable initiative.

So, how will YOU give this #givingtuesday? / @givingtuesday

Social Friday was built on the premise of love for our neighbors and our planet. We’ve worked and will continue to work to make giving - not a once per year matter - but part of the everyday lifestyle.

*Social Friday ready to help you give back more than once a year*

Today is Cyber Monday; just another day where our society indulges in consumerism and taking in - after just having given thanks this Friday - over #Thanksgiving dinner.

Neuroscience @voxdotcom seems to be revealing a link between practicing #gratitude and #charitable giving. We hope you'll be using this neural connection to give back to the community today and tomorrow during #givingtuesday2020.

Moreover, we at Social Friday have it as our mission to cultivate thanksgiving and giving back more than once a year. So if you want to give beyond Thanksgiving, and Giving Tuesday, join Social Friday, a ready platform to help you give back to the community.

For a healthier economy, a better world -- use the power of Social Friday.
