First there was Black Friday. Then there was Cyber Monday. Now there’s Giving Tuesday, a global day of giving celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving. Giving Tuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. Visit givingtuesday.org for a directory to help you find organizations, charities, events and more in your own community. Dan’s Best of the Best Sam’s Beverage Place (samsbeverageplace.com) in in East Hampton, for example, is donating 10% of all sales on Tuesday, November 28 to the East Hampton Food Pantry.
Anyone supporting local community-based charities on Giving Tuesday should consider a Donors Unite charity gift card. Donors Unite asks people to think of Giving Tuesday not as ONE DAY at the end of the shopping season for giving back; but as a kickoff to a 365 DAYS long season of giving back through better gifting.
