Spending days shopping after celebrating thankfulness can also seem counter-productive, which is why nonprofits around the country, including us, have come together to celebrate giving and thankfulness as we enter the holiday season with #GivingTuesday.
Giving Tuesday takes place every year on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, giving participants a chance to donate to causes that matter to them the most. This year, December 3rd, we hope you join this international movement with us - to help us reach our goal of $1,000 by Giving Tuesday.
