This holiday season, DonorsChoose.org is excited to celebrate #GivingTuesday – a day of giving at the start of the annual holiday shopping season.Everyone knows about "Black Friday" and "Cyber Monday", events created by the retail sector to drive shopping. We’re excited to be part of the first ever #GivingTuesday. Today, retailers, charities, online organizations, and community centers are encouraging people to get involved by volunteering for and giving to the causes they care about most.It's easy to get involved with #GivingTuesday:
Make a contribution to your favorite non-profit
Volunteer for a cause that’s close to your heart
Spread the word by sharing these messages on your social media channels
We hope #GivingTuesday will join the ranks of Black Friday and Cyber Monday and become an opening day to the giving season. Follow the movement on Twitter and Facebook.
