After the shopping frenzy that was Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday, maybe it’s time to take a step back and remember what’s really important this holiday season: being kind, generous, and giving. Last year, the United Nations kicked off the first ever Giving Tuesday in an effort to remind people around the world that the holidays aren’t just about consumerism. The idea is for us to all join together with our communities (physical and digital) to make the world a better place. This year, over 7,000 nonprofits are participating (over last year’s 2,500). Are you up for the challenge? Go to the full Giving Tuesday profile piece to find out what you can do to participate this year!
