Participate in #GivingTuesday with HuTerra

We’ve all heard of Black Friday and Cyber Monday as days dedicated to spending following Thanksgiving. Despite the bad rap these pseudo holidays receive for encouraging greed immediately after a day of centered entirely around giving thanks, they certainly serve a purpose. The month between Thanksgiving and Christmas is the busiest and most profitable time of the year, but the kick off of two days dedicated to large scale spending are the most notable.

Similarly, the nonprofit realm receives the most donations of the year during this month, with a dedicated day to start off the season of spending. In 2012, Giving Tuesday was born and became the Black Friday of nonprofits.

Whether your participation in Giving Tuesday is to balance out a 4 a.m. shopping excursion, or because you want to help those in need experience a truly memorable holiday season they may not be able to otherwise have, your donation will make a difference to your favorite charity. Just last year, this dedicated day of giving helped nonprofits raise $27 million. In fact, every year since its inception, Giving Tuesday donation amounts have doubled, which is great news for nonprofits.
