First we had Thanksgiving. Then there was Black Friday, followed by Cyber Monday.

Now, there’s a new celebration gaining popularity…Giving Tuesday.

Before we go spend tons of money on presents for friends and family this holiday season, we are joining the movement, which is an opportunity to give back to your community and worthy charities who are in desperate need of donations.

#GivingTuesday raised $10 million in online donations last year, which is a 53% increase when compared to the Tuesday after Thanksgiving the previous year, before the charitable movement went nationwide.

Carson felt particularly inspired to help homeless children, but you can donate to any cause you’re passionate about.

All partners of #GivingTuesday are registered non-profits, otherwise known as a 501(c)3.

One easy way to participate? Give some spare change to the hard-working Salvation Army bell ringers!

Captain Jim Brickson, a volunteer in Minnesota, is attempting to break a world record by bell-ringing non-stop for at least 80 consecutive hours. He only gets one five-minute break every hour and he cannot eat, drink, or sit while he is ringing the bell.

Brickson hopes to raise $24,000 for the Salvation Army. He began his quest earlier this morning and if all goes as planned, he’ll wrap things up around 7pm on Friday.

  • Do you plan on donating to any charities on #GivingTuesday? Tell us which organizations you support!
