What was once traditionally known as the busiest shopping day of the year in the early 1950’s, the more modern name of ‘Black Friday’ was followed by ‘Cyber Monday’ in 2005 and known for great shopping deals online. But in 2012 #GivingTuesday began as a global day of giving back with the power of collaboration and social media. Today I am grateful that in a season which typically seems focused on material things this movement has not only been started but it is going strong. For more information or to find an organization you can give back to you can visit http://givingtuesday.org. While there are many great organizations to contribute to, few that are near and dear to my heart are Alpha Family Center of Greenville, Calvary Church and CureSMA.
