#Giving Tuesday November 27th 2012

Giving Tuesday is the Tuesday after Cyber Monday and is a new day of giving thanks.  I think every day is a good day to give thanks but it is nice to have another "official" one.

It is really nice to have it right after Thanksgiving because you are already in the thankful mood!

Everyone knows about “Black Friday” or “Cyber Monday.” This year, #GivingTuesday takes its place in the calendar, and will help put giving back into the holiday season.

Giving Tuesday!

Join me on #GivingTuesday this year and help remind everyone to get back into the giving.

Go to  and learn more but really It’s a simple idea. Find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to join in acts of giving. Tell everyone you can about what you are doing and why it matters. Join a national celebration of our great tradition of generosity.

During November, the #GivingTuesday campaign will provide a framework for Americans to contribute to their community and help make this season the biggest giving season yet. It will inspire people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they support and help create a better world.
Our goal is for #GivingTuesday become a major part of the holiday season, putting giving at the forefront in November rather than an afterthought in December or the New Year.
