It's Giving Tuesday. a time to think of those less fortunate during the holiday season and give back to our community.
After that long holiday weekend of shopping and deals, Giving Tuesday is a day Americans are urged to volunteer or make donations to local, national and international charities.
The one-day charitable giving promotion launched in 2012. Since most charities generate a vast majority of their contributions at the end of the year, Giving Tuesday has opened the door to a more-organized effort on a specific day.
