But are you ready for Giving Tuesday? By designating a calendar day for charity, nonprofits hope to "put giving back on the map".
"Giving Tuesday, an annual day of giving slated for the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, seeks to rival Black Friday and Cyber Monday by celebrating the philosophy of giving during the holidays, and by kicking off the giving season on a specific day: Tuesday, Dec. 3. In a sign of the day’s connection to social media campaigns, the group uses the Twitter hashtag symbol in front of its name – #GivingTuesday – as a way to spread the cause." -- Emmilie Buchanan-Whitlock, the Deseret News
