Sarah Hardacre
Fiverr celebrated its second International Freelancer Day with a number of announcements and events. The annual event is a worldwide celebration to put a spotlight on the positive contribution freelancers make to businesses.

“International Freelancer Day serves as both an annual milestone and a celebration, dedicated to honoring these versatile professionals and their unparalleled work ethic,” said Gali Arnon, Chief Marketing Officer at Fiverr.

During the event, Fiverr also announced the launch of its Freelance Community Impact grant. The platform will donate to nonprofits and community-based organizations that focus on supporting freelancers through advocacy or by expanding resources to develop skills and careers.

One example is Fiverr’s wellness grant in partnership with the Freelancers Union. It offers freelancers the opportunity to receive a $500 grant to pay toward mental, physical, social, and financial wellness resources.

Fiverr is also partnering with WeWork to offer Fiverr freelancers the opportunity to network in one of WeWork’s flexible spaces in locations across the US, India, Indonesia, Argentina, France, the UK, Germany, and Australia.

Fiverr revealed it will be deploying a “Perks Hub” for Fiverr freelancers, where they will be able to access discounts with partners such as Adobe, You.com, Printful, Powtoon, and Hostinger.

In advance of the day, Fiverr encouraged freelancers to post on social media to bring more visibility to the advantages of working freelance. Those using the prompt “I freelance, so I can…” and the hashtag #intlfreelancerday. The top 10 participants who created videos or images responding to the prompt were eligible to win a $1,000 gift card. The top 50 freelancers who posted the best messages could win a $100 gift card.

In a study conducted by Fiverr, it determined that the work done by freelancers is becoming more recognized, with 31% of freelancers having successfully raised their rates in 2023 and 72% expecting to increase their revenue in 2023 versus 2022.
