Giving Tuesday is a movement to create a national day of giving to kick off the giving season added to the calendar on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday. The second annual GivingTuesday is on December 3rd and you’re invited to join the celebration with NTEN!
Want to participate? Here are three easy ways you can be part of the giving season kick-off:
