Newsday Tuesday: Today is the National Day of Giving

By Global Moms Challenge

December 3, 2013

MMCGT #GivingTuesday is a national day of giving back. This new holiday encourages everyone, everywhere to give to their favorite charities. Just as we have days for deals on Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday to grab our holiday bargains, we have a day to kick off the giving season to charitable organizations.

USA Today featured #GivingTuesday, along with hundreds of other news site, to encourage people across the country to take the day to give back to the causes that mean the most to them.

Anyone can be a philanthropist. Make your own #GivingTuesday pledge – time, talent, or donations – to whichever cause you’re passionate about. Choose the charities YOU love or the socially conscious products YOU want to buy that benefit those in need, or how and where you’ll volunteer. You can learn all about it at
