Today Is #Giving Tuesday, the Day of Giving

Last Friday was what is called Black Friday here in the United States.  We hope you had a great Black Friday shopping spree.  Yesterday was what is now called, Cyber Monday.  Friday and Monday after Thanksgiving are days for pre-holiday shopping; but the Tuesday after Thanksgiving is the day of giving.  There are even opportunities from businesses for shoppers to make generous donations to their charities of choice.  When shoppers make their payments today, whether transactions are online or in person, they can ask that a percentage of their sales be donated to a chosen charity.

The Friday after Thanksgiving is when most of Americans take to the stores to capture the most discounted items for the upcoming holiday season.  Black Friday has become so popular lately; some shoppers shorten their Thanksgiving dinners and risk missing the excitement of the traditional football games, only to camp out in the cold for hours.  They want to be the first in queue when the doors of the stores open.


Many shoppers prefer to skip the madness of Black Friday and shop online.  If you are one of such shoppers, and there are items you select from Amazon, please go to Amazon Smile & donate to Global Woman P.E.A.C.E. Foundation:  As you make your purchases from, please do so by supporting us at: and Amazon will donate to Global Woman P.E.A.C.E. Foundation.  #StartWithaSmile at and Amazon will donate to a percentage of what you spend to Global Woman P.E.A.C.E. Foundation, when you select Global Woman P.E.A.C.E. Foundation as your favorite charity.


#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.  If you are wondering what the origin of #GivingTuesday is and how it all began.  In 1874, a cultural center in New York City, 92nd Y started bringing people together around the values of service and giving back.  Six 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.
