With the holidays at our doorstep, everywhere you look there’s a “clearance event” going on. Black Friday has given retailers a boost in sales as Cyber Monday takes off. Have we lost the true meaning of the holidays? Are we now more accepting this as a part of the holiday ritual?

Starting tomorrow, November 27 organizations are collaborating to promote a new initiative: #GivingTuesday. “This is an opportunity for us to use our collective voice to make a difference together,” Mashable said in September.
Want to get involved?
Research local non-profits or organizations that can truly benefit from your attention this holiday season. If we work together, a philanthropy you know may get a boost too.
