It is a global movement, calling to create a national day of giving around the annual shopping and giving season.The movement just puts together several hundreds of organizations, brands, companies, and volunteers around the world, to promote giving on the first Tuesday following the Thanksgiving Holiday. It is on December 3rd this year.The #Givingtuesday organization does not collect funds or donations on their website. #Givingtuesday does not solicit gifts on behalf of their partners.
