You've heard of Black Friday and Cyber Monday but have you heard of Giving Tuesday?
Giving Tuesday started in 2012 and has become a movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy. It is powered by social media and collaboration, and is held the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving.
In 2016, over $180 million dollars was raised in the U.S. alone during #GivingTuesday.
