What is Giving Tuesday?

#GivingTuesday™ (#GT) is a movement created to celebrate giving on the Tuesday  following Cyber Monday.

The fourth annual GivingTuesday will take place this December 1st. In the same way that retail sector takes part in Cyber Monday, the giving community comes together for a day of giving back!
