After Turkey day and shopping galore there is Giving Tuesday. It’s the kickoff to charitable giving around the world at a time when many focus on end-of-year campaigns. In it’s fourth year, Giving Tuesday is a movement celebrating and supporting philanthropy. The power of social media has been harnessed to connect generous people to support their communities. There is a collective power in Giving Tuesday to bring all people together, encouraging small acts of kindness.
