Days to go: 

Giving Tuesday is a global philanthropic movement that encourages individuals, communities, and organizations to show generosity in myriad ways. Its purpose is to galvanize people from all walks of life to support charitable causes and give back to their communities. It's a day dedicated to humanity, bringing together individuals to help people and organizations in need.

Giving Tuesday emerged in 2012 as a simple idea - a day aimed at generosity, nestled amidst the rush of post-Thanksgiving sales. Brought to life by the 92nd Street Y, a community and cultural center in New York City, and the United Nations Foundation, it has rapidly caught up to become a worldwide phenomenon.

Giving Tuesday is celebrated through monetary donations, volunteering time, lending skills for a cause, or amplifying voices for underrepresented groups. This day of altruism emphasizes giving in all forms, recognizing that everyone has something to offer. The efforts put forth on this day leave lasting, meaningful impacts on communities across the globe. Giving Tuesday takes place on the Tuesday following the U.S. Thanksgiving day.
