#GivingTuesday is a charitable movement that takes place during the holiday season. For one day, (the Tuesday after Black Friday) we’re reminded that giving back and aiding important causes is just as (if not more) important as super savings deals. Extend the holiday spirit and give back to your arts and cultural family.
