Giving Tuesday is a global tradition of charity and philanthropy on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving.
What is the meaning of Giving Tuesday?
Giving is part of holiday traditions, but a lot of us complain about how the Holiday season has become overly commercial.
Giving Tuesday was started in 2012 by the Belfer Center for Innovation & Social Impact at the 92nd Street Y as a counterpoint to the out-of-control consumerism of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, the biggest shopping days of the year.
Giving Tuesday has rapidly grown into a global movement. It’s about service to all people. That idea is very 92nd Street Y.
