Giving Tuesday: A New Day to Make the Holiday Season More Charitable

On the heels of Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday comes Giving Tuesday, a national initiative to get you thinking about nonprofit charities.

Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday are gone, and likely are your food comas and midnight spending sprees.

So why not spend Tuesday giving back, with donations of money or support to local charities as part of a national initiative called Giving Tuesday?

Founded by New York-based community center 92Y and the United Nations Foundation, Giving Tuesday is meant to supercharge nonprofit organizations during the holidays.

For a full list of partnering organizations and complete details about the Giving Tuesday initiative, visit givingtuesday.org.

We are on the threshold of the holiday shopping season—also called the season of giving—and Giving Tuesday wants the act of giving to go viral.

Tag your applicable tweets with #GivingTuesday and follow the initiative on Twitter, Facebook, Pintrest, YouTube and Tumblr.

Are Black Friday and Cyber Monday traditions that you participate in, or are you more of a Buy Nothing Day, counter-culture kind of person?

Will you likely make Giving Tuesday a regular thing? Let us know in the comments section.
