We all know about Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but after these two events there is another day that isn't advertised as much. It is called Giving Tuesday. According to the Giving Tuesday website, this day has been celebrated for nine years and is used as a means for people to give back to their community and support the organizations that help those in need get back on their feet.

Giving Tuesday began in New York City in 2012. This idea that was once just used as an inspiration to give back worked as a motivation for a group of people to create a nonprofit that continually supported this event every year. Therefore, on this day, the news outlets and several of the larger communities encourage people to give back to their communities.

Though donations to nonprofits are accepted, this isn't the only way that people can give back. There are several soup kitchens that need volunteers. There are blood drives that need donors, and there are several neighborhoods that need people to clean up litter. The way that one gives back on this day is up to him or her, but when everyone contributes in some way, we all make the world a better place to live for our families and the families that come after ours.

So, if you would like to find out more information on events that might be going on in your community during this day, feel free to check out the Giving Tuesday website. Every little bit of good that we put in this world helps to yield results for a better future.
