Created to kick off the giving season, #GivingTuesday is a national day of giving.  It celebrates and encourages charitable activities that support nonprofit organizations.  Tomorrow, people everywhere will come together with one common purpose – to inspire philanthropy and encourage bigger, better and smarter charitable giving during the holiday season. 

 #GivingTuesday is for all of us – adults, children, volunteers, donors, businesses and nonprofits.  The ways to participate are practically endless.  And everyone can help spread the word.  Visit #GivingTuesday to see how momentum is building, and see all the creative ways people are giving back to their communities and helping create a better world.

I hope you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.  And as Thanksgiving marks the beginning of the holiday season, I hope #GivingTuesday marks the beginning of a powerful season of giving for you.
