The post-Thanksgiving shopping frenzy may be winding down, but as you finish checking off your gift list, consider joining in the Giving Tuesday movement.
November 29th is the global day of giving. Following Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday is often overlooked, but since it’s inception in 2012, this movement grows every year. Celebrate with us and together we can make a real difference.
Similar to Small Business Saturday, one of the best ways to get involved is in your own community. Giving Tuesday organizers share that helping others comes can come in many different forms. Give the gift of your time, donations, goods, or your voice. We’ve put together a list of nonprofits that we admire to get you started that fit any budget.
