On Tuesday November 27, 2012, something new and unique will take place. It is called #GivingTuesday.
The goal of #GivingTuesday is to encourage people everywhere including retailers, charities, online organizations, community centers, individuals and families to come together with one common purpose -- to help others and incentivize ways to give more, give smarter, and celebrate the great American spirit of contribution. Charity Navigator's website has lots of ideas to help you celebrate #GivingTuesday and suggestions for how you can spread the word. And the following video provides important tips to help you not just give more, but give smarter.
