Celebrate #GivingTuesday – Help Us Help Others In Need

November 21, 2014

Friday, November 28th is Black Friday. Monday December 1st is Cyber Monday. And Tuesday, December 2nd, is #GivingTuesday!

Will you be celebrating #GivingTuesday? Do you plan to give to others during this world-wide event?

What Is #GivingTuesday?

#GivingTuesday is a day for giving thanks. A day of coming together and celebrating world-wide generousity. A day to give back to others who have helped you and yours.



#GivingTuesday began in 2012 as a collaborative effort with the United Nations Foundation in response to Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It is a global initiative designed to bring the world together for one special day of giving as opposed to mass consumerism.
