Giving Tuesday is coming

Every holiday season we seem to hear some news story about someone getting trampled or pepper sprayed on Black Friday in pursuit of a deal on the latest gadget to hit store shelves. In an initiative to restore the spirit of the holiday season, Giving Tuesday will take place Tuesday, December 3, immediately following Black Friday and Cyber Monday. This event, in its second year, has rallied hundreds of organizations, businesses, and individuals to participate in philanthropic initiatives for the common good. And it’s easy for you to get involved, too: Just use the hashtag #givingtuesday when doing your good deed.
