November is the month of giving. We have a day to give thanks and even special days for retailers to give discounts with Black Friday and Cyber Monday. We also have an annual day for giving back — #GivingTuesday.

Now in its fifth year, #GivingTuesday is celebrated the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, and was conceived to harness the power of social media to bring businesses, non-profits, community organizations, individuals and families together to give back.
Building momentum and a better world
In 2015, #GivingTuesday raised $177 million in donations to various causes and organizations. That's an increase of 145 percent from the previous year and proof that the movement toward building a better world is growing.

Get in on the giving
This year, #GivingTuesday will be celebrated on Tuesday, Nov. 29. Here are some ways you can join the celebration:
  • Contact a local non-profit to find how you can help.
  • If you don't have extra funds to donate, consider volunteering your time or skills to help a worthy organization.
  • Donate toys to a children's organization.
  • Make a financial donation to a charity or cause that's important to you.
  • Invite your family members, friends, and co-workers to give with you.
  • Ask your company to participate in a company-wide giving initiative.
  • Use social media to promote #GivingTuesday and share photos of you giving back.
