It's more than a day it's a movement!
Giving Tuesday was started in 2012 as a response to commercialization and consumerism in the post-Thanksgiving season. It is a movement to create an international day of giving at the beginning of the Christmas and holiday season. Giving Tuesday is held annually the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. Generosity gives everyone the power to make a positive change in the lives of others and is a fundamental value anyone can act on. It's been encouraged to give every Tuesday not just the Tuesday after Thanksgiving.
