Today is Giving Tuesday. This giving actually runs for the entire 5 days after Thanksgiving, but today is the BIG ‘Giving Tuesday’ day.
It’s all about charitable giving. You have already spent tons of money during the Black Friday weekend, and this gives you a chance to share some of that giving spirit with those in need.
It was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past seven years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.GivingTuesday.org
You can give to ANY charitable organization that you prefer. There are a TON that advertise for Giving Tuesday, but you can choose any one you wish.
Choose an organization that’s close to your heart, and give what you can.
Are you passionate about fighting cancer, shelter animals, St. Jude’s children, the fight for ALS, or a local homeless shelter? Go for it! Today is the day to give back.
Do you feel bad, because you don’t have extra money to give? Not a problem. You can also give of your time — VOLUNTEER!
It’s all about working together, paying it forward, and helping where needed.
Remember to photograph and hashtag your #GivingTuesday good deeds. Help inspire others to jump in and participate!
