(StatePoint) More than 37 million Americans face hunger at home every day. One of the ways you can lend a helping hand is by participating in Giving Tuesday, a worldwide movement to encourage people and corporations to celebrate generosity and do good for their communities.

If you are looking for ways to give back, you can get inspired by — and involved with — some of the organizations and companies doing their part.

For example, this year on Giving Tuesday, T-Mobile is rallying customers, fans and employees to help give up to 5 million meals to people in need through a partnership with Feeding America, the nation’s largest hunger-relief nonprofit. Feeding America operates a network of 200 food banks, which provide food and groceries to 60,000 food pantries, soup kitchens and emergency feeding sites around the U.S.

“Ringing in the holiday season at T-Mobile is all about giving back in a big way,” says John Legere, T-Mobile CEO. “We’re going to donate up to 5 million meals to people in need — helping people focus on connecting with their families without having to worry about getting food on their table.”

Here are two ways for folks to connect, get involved and give back through this campaign starting Dec. 3.

• Save a Deal, Give a Meal: Customers can give up to five meals by saving any of the deals in the T-Mobile Tuesdays app on December 3. For every deal saved, T-Mobile will donate a meal to Feeding America. You can download the app here.

• Get social: Every time anyone tweets using the hashtag #GivingOnUs, T-Mobile will contribute 10 meals to Feeding America. You don’t even have to be a customer to participate.

In total, via Twitter and the T-Mobile Tuesdays app, T-Mobile is aiming to donate up to 5 million meals to Feeding America.

T-Mobile is also planning 100 employee volunteer events with Feeding America-affiliated organizations across the country through the end of the year. What’s more, the T-Mobile Foundation will deposit $25 into every employee’s Giving Account, which they can donate to the charity of their choice this holiday season. With 52,000 T-Mobile employees across the U.S., that adds up to a potential $1.3 million of charitable giving. “Everyone has a role to play in ending hunger, whether that’s making a donation, volunteering at a local food bank or using your voice on social media to spread the word,” says Andy Wilson, chief development officer of Feeding America, “We can’t end hunger alone. Individuals, businesses, charities and government entities must all join the fight. We’re tremendously grateful for T-Mobile’s commitment in helping to fight hunger and bringing national attention to this critical issue.”

From raising awareness on social media to volunteering in a soup kitchen, there are many ways to help fight hunger in your community this Giving Tuesday and beyond.
