Tuesday is #GivingTuesday, a day in which people are encouraged to spread holiday cheer even further by donating to charities, nonprofits, and other community organizations.

GivingTuesday.org offered this description of the annual day of giving:

#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.

Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.

One of the best ways to get involved is in your own community. We've created a directory to help you find organizations, charities, events and more in your own community.
