It is the start of the annual holiday season. In the United States, we have a day for getting deals (Black Friday), a day to support local businesses (Small Business Saturday), and a day to buy goodies while shopping online (Cyber Monday).
Then, we have #GivingTuesday — celebrated annually the first Tuesday after the Thanksgiving holiday — a day for “doing good” through the power of social media and collaboration. In its fifth year, #GivingTuesday is becoming a global phenomenon among philanthropists and techies alike.
#GivingTuesday is global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration taking place on Tuesday, November 29th. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.), #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
