The Tuesday after Thanksgiving is traditionally known as 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. #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.
