November 29, 2016 is Giving Tuesday. “Help others through the gift of your time, donations, goods or your voice.”
Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
One of the best ways to get involved is in your own community. Click here for a directory to help you find organizations, charities, events and more in your own community. For more information on Giving Tuesday, visit https://www.givingtuesday.org/
