What is #GivingTuesday?

Today is #GivingTuesday.  What is #GivingTuesday?  Thousands of shoppers take to the stores the day after Thanksgiving in the U.S. to get the best deals of the holiday season.  The day is called, Black Friday.  Then there is the Monday after Thanksgiving, which is referred to as Cyber Monday.  #GivingTuesday is special, especially to nonprofit organizations.  #GivingTuesday is the day when charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world come together for one common purpose.  They celebrate giving and generosity.

What is the origin of #GivingTuesday?  A cultural center in New York City called 92nd Y in 1874 started bringing people together around the values of service and giving back.  Four years ago, the same cultural center created #GivingTuesday.  The day is intended to connect diverse groups of individuals, communities and organizations in the spirit of giving.  #GivingTuesday is a global movement, which unites countries around the world by sharing their capacity to care for and empower one another.
