Giving Tuesday and the season of thanks

giving tuesday

#GivingTuesday takes place tomorrow.  It is the Philanthropic community’s response to the excessive commercialism that follows the Thanksgiving holiday.  It seems strange that we can switch gears so quickly from giving thanks and giving back to the reckless commercialism that comes with Black Friday and Cyber Monday,  #Giving Tuesday, takes back the season and puts the focus back on giving back and giving to others.  We all owe a debt of gratitude to the philanthropic community for developing this new “holiday”.  So participate in #GivingTuesday tomorrow and give, volunteer or advocate for your favorite charity.
