Tuesday November 29, 2016 is Giving Tuesday.

“Giving Tuesday takes place on the Tuesday directly after American Thanksgiving, which in turn takes place on the 4th Thursday of November. This day was created to help the “giving season” get started, reminding people that there is more to holidays than consumerism and commercialization.

The intention was to set aside a day that was all about celebrating the generosity of giving, a great American tradition. The first announcement about Giving Tuesday was made through Mashable, a technology website. The first Giving Tuesday was covered extensively by the Washington Post, the Huffington Post, ABC News, Deseret News, and the White House official blog. This day is organized and celebrated each year with the simple aim of encouraging individuals, families, schools, businesses, and other organizations to give to the less fortunate. This day has been praised by many, including the Chronicle of Philanthropy, a newspaper that covers the nonprofit world, as an antidote to consumer culture and a way for people to give back.

There is no shortage of ways in which this can be done. Ideas have included organizing fundraisers, with the intention of giving the proceeds to a charity. There are many ways to give. Many things that can be given besides just money. The hashtag #GivingTuesday was also created to raise awareness about the needy and encourage people to give to charities. The truth is that there are thousands of charity organization the world over, many of which are likely located somewhere near you. Every single one of them could use your help, so find a cause that is especially important to you personally, whether it’s fighting a certain type of cancer, helping to buy schoolbooks for children from very poor families, or helping the animals at your local animal shelter, and take action!” ^sPm – #sharpharmade Fr ‘Days of the Year’ http://ow.ly/i/psNIO
