Giving Tuesday GivingTuesday is a global movement unleashing the power of radical generosity. GivingTuesday: A day that encourages people to do good. Whether it’s making someone smile, helping a neighbor or stranger out, showing up for an issue or people we care about, or giving some of what we have to those who need our help, every act of generosity counts and everyone has something to give. https://www.givingtuesday.org/
