What is #GivingTuesday?

Giving Tuesday is a global, giving holiday. It is appropriately situated after Black Friday and Cyber Monday to help remind us that there are many different ways of giving during the holidays. It was developed to highlight giving to non-profits through volunteering or monetary donations. This years #GivingTuesday is on November 29, 2022.
