Giving Tuesday is an international phenomenon that's about supporting nonprofits on the biggest day of giving of the year, the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving. It was intended to put into perspective extreme shopping days like Black Friday (which is the first Friday after Thanksgiving) and help shine a light on the needs of nonprofits.

For everyone involved, both donors and nonprofits, Giving Tuesday has also become a day for telling your story about why you give or how you help others. Last year there were 113 billion Twitter impressions of tweets that mentioned #GivingTuesday.
