With Black Friday basically turning into an entire weekend of deals, and Cyber Monday to follow, you may need a palette cleanser from all the shopping and bargains by donating to a charity on Giving Tuesday.
Giving Tuesday officially began in 2012 as a way for people to use their money to donate to a cause or charity, in addition to buying gifts for loved ones.
So where should you give on Giving Tuesday?
A quick search of #GivingTuesday on Twitter brings up tons of different charities that are happily accepting donations, like Habitat For Humanity and Make-A-Wish.
