We have two days for getting deals: Black Friday & Cyber Monday. On Giving Tuesday, we have a day for giving back. #GivingTuesday is the opening day of the giving season: a reminder of the “Reason for the Season”! Giving Tuesday doesn’t just end on November 28, 2017. It’s an invitation to help us increase our donations through the rest of the year.
