After the shopping gluttony of Black Friday weekend and Cyber Monday it’s important to stop, take a breath, and think about giving back. Giving Tuesday is a global day dedicated to charitable giving to organizations of your choice. This social media campaign, initiated in 2012 has become a movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy. Parents can use Giving Tuesday as an opportunity to teach children about the importance of giving and helping others. If a monetary donation doesn’t fit in your budget, consider donating your time or expertise. Local organizations that will be running campaigns for Giving Tuesday: Food Gatherers, Community Action Network, Habitat for Humanity of Huron Valley, Neutral Zone, Ozone House, and many more. Visit the Giving Tuesday website and contact local organizations for more information.
