What is #GivingTuesday?
Founded in 2012, #GivingTuesday is a movement to support giving back at the start of the holiday season. Following in the footsteps of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday is building a tradition of giving. On Tuesday, November 28, 2017, the world will come together to celebrate and encourage giving.
