Giving Tuesday is a global observance that was created to encourage generosity. It began in 2012 and is celebrated on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. What started out as a small-scale initiative has become an entire movement with the help of social media. #GivingTuesday has inspired millions to give back.
Thank you for your generosity

Note to our medal donors: Medals4Mettle accepts only earned marathon, half-marathon, or triathlon medals. In the spirit of fostering philanthropy, we also accept medals earned by children who wish to donate them to other children. We appreciate your donated medals, however please do not send badges, pins, patches, stickers, plaques, ribbons or trophies as these cannot be used. Only the medals noted above are accepted.
Also, to reduce your postage costs and our labor, please remove the medal from its ribbon before mailing. We will award your medal with a clean brilliantly-colored Medals4Mettle ribbon.
Please package your medal(s) in a large envelope with card board or bubble wrap around it to prevent the envelope from becoming torn or destroyed in postage machines. Send your medal to the nearest Chapter address listed on the Chapters page of this site. Thank you!
