#GivingTuesday is a global giving movement helping others through the gift of your time, donations, goods or your voice.
#GivingTuesday is the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and kicks off the charitable season. One of the best ways to get involved is in your own community. You can search the directory to help you find organizations, charities, events and more in your own community.
#GivingTuesday raised $177 million last year, according to GivingTuesday.org — and this year is on track to surpass even that.
This spirit of giving benefits more than the recipients. Science shows that doing good for others is good for you. In fact, several studies indicate that helping others can lower blood pressure, decrease stress and increase happiness.
