Giving Tuesday is a day to give back to your community, charities or city after a weekend of gluttonous shopping. It is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Giving Tuesday Day also reminds us giving back doesn’t have to be monetary; you can also volunteer at a non-profit organization or get involved with local charitable events. In fact there is a lady in my neighborhood that hands out pre-made lunches and waters to the homeless. Any simple act of kindness today that gives back to your community is a great way to celebrate and get involved with #GivingTuesday.
How do I get involved during #GivingTuesday?
The GivingTuesday.com site lets you “search nearby” on the non-profit organizations in your area by City, State, organization type and organization name.

You can also click the “get involved” tab either as an individual or an organization to learn more on how to get involved with #GivingTuesday today and in the future.
Does my company match my donation?’
To check if your company matches your donation and to access the forms, guidelines, and instructions you need to submit your matching gift the Double the Donations site is a great tool to use. The site also has 7 Steps guide for matching gift success on #GivingTuesday.
