In the days following Thanksgiving, leftovers aren't the only thing to look forward to. Shoppers may comb through the deals delivered on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, stocking up gifts for the holidays. However, there's another post-Thanksgiving tradition you may not have heard of: Giving Tuesday.
Giving Tuesday, which falls on Nov. 30, 2021, is a day for people across the country to get together and give back to their communities. Since its inception, the movement has raised billions of dollars for nonprofit organizations across the spectrum: whether it's for at-risk youth, the environment or pet adoptions.
And while the money is incredibly significant, there are other ways to help besides giving cash: You can volunteer with a nonprofit, for example, or donate your old clothes to a shelter. You can even just be kind to your neighbor. If you're interested in giving back this holiday, here's what you can do for your community on GivingTuesday.
