Black Friday, Cyber Monday, How About #GivingTuesday?


First, it was Black Friday.

Then they added Cyber Monday.

But have you heard of #GivingTuesday?


From the #GivingTuesday website:

“We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. This year help create #GivingTuesday™, the giving season’s opening day.

On Tuesday November 27, 2012 charities, families, businesses and individuals are coming together to transform the way people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season.

It’s a simple idea. Find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to join in acts of giving. Tell everyone you can about what you are doing and why it matters. Join a national celebration of our great tradition of generosity.

And together we’ll create ways to give more, give better and give smarter.”

Pretty cool, right?

Do you think this will catch on?

Will you join the giving next Tuesday?

Learn more about #GivingTuesday and how you can get involved on the #GivingTuesday website.

Help spread the word!

    Cool idea. I think it’s awesome to see people giving of their gifts and time. I love to see people give money, but sometimes we are too quick to give gifts of money, when giving of your time is closer to the true spirit of servitude in my opinion.
