Did you know that about a quarter of all donations to charities are given during December? GivingTuesday—the first Tuesday following Thanksgiving and the new “Black Friday” of philanthropic giving—was established in 2012 to serve as a celebratory kickoff day to the giving season. This year, GivingTuesday will be on December 3.
GivingTuesday doesn’t have to be about giving a lot of money. Yes, you can give. But you can give in many ways, such as volunteering your time. Every act of kindness, no matter how small, adds together with others and can change the world for the better.
