America is most generous country on earth: Howard Husock reminds us to "give thanks for something implicit in Giving Tuesday: the opportunity to give".
"This coming Tuesday, December 2, will be the third annual Giving Tuesday, the charitable-giving answer to Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The brainchild of Henry Timms, now the executive director of one of New York’s greatest cultural institutions, the 92nd Street Y, the idea is simple but powerful: spur charitable giving by putting it on millions’ of Americans’ to-do list. It’s no wonder the idea has attracted a range of high-profile corporate and foundation partners. It should." -- Howard Husock, Forbes.com
