What is Giving Tuesday?
#GivingTuesday is a national movement to kick off the holiday season in a unique way by giving back to your local non-profit organization of choice. In the same way that retail stores take part in Black Friday and Cyber Monday, the giving community is coming together to show their support on one specific day, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. It started years ago as an online campaign dubbed “#GivingTuesday” and has gained tremendous momentum with people participating all over the country raising much needed funds for thousands of non-profit organizations.
Join millions of people who have begun the tradition of making a gift to support their non-profit organization of choice after a day of holiday shopping filled with deals and steals and endless cyber shopping.
