5 September: Celebrating the work charities do

International flags

Monday 5 September marks the International Day of Charity - a day to pay tribute to the amazing work charities do across the world. The date, declared by the United Nations General Assembly in 2012, was chosen to commemorate the anniversary of the death of Mother Teresa of Calcutta, who received a Nobel Peace Prize in 1979 for her commitment to charity work.

Charities are at the heart of BT MyDonate and without them, we wouldn’t be able to raise the money we do – or even exist! We welcome charities across the platform: big and small, for a number of causes. A big thank you to all the charities and fundraisers registered on our site!
