#GivingTuesday is less than a week away. After giving thanks on Thanksgiving and shopping deals on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday is the day dedicated to giving back.
What is #GivingTuesday?
#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving that is celebrated each year on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving. This year, #GivingTuesday is on November 29.
#GivingTuesday creates an opportunity for donors, volunteers, and supporters to come together, get involved in their communities, and back the causes they care about most. It harnesses the collective power of nonprofits, businesses and corporations, families, and individuals, to transform how people think about, talk about, and participate in impacting the world.
