Tuesday, December 2, marks the third annual Giving Tuesday, a global day dedicated to giving in which indivduals are encouraged to volunteer or give money to causes as an antidote to Black Friday or Cyber Monday.

As part of the third annual movement, thousands of charities, churches and schools are holding events and encouraging people to participate, many through the website GivingTuesday.org.

Facebook, Twitter and Instagram users are also encouraged to use the hashtag "#GivingTuesday" and "#Unselfie" to show how they are giving back this holiday season.
