What is #GivingTuesday?

There’s a day for giving thanks, three days for cashing in on deals — and now there’s a day to give back.

Black Friday and Cyber Monday can step aside, because today is Giving Tuesday, a day observed internationally to promote philanthropy and generosity.

If you’re feeling generous, you can open up your wallet and give to the charity of your choice. Or you can volunteer your time for a local organization by doing yard work, painting or decorating for the holidays. Either way, organizers urge those taking part to go on social media with the hashtag “Giving Tuesday” and show how they’re giving back.
