Give back to community through #GivingTuesday

This time of year, with the holiday season rushing in, there is a lot of talk about giving — along with a constant stream of commercials, sales and coupons continually reminding us about all of the stuff to buy during this giving season. It’s been estimated that the average person sees up to 5,000 ads per day. With so much stress and so much to do during the holiday season, it can be easy to forget the reason for the season — giving. You’ve probably heard of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. But did you know that now there is also a day dedicated to giving back to your community? That day is called #GivingTuesday, and it’s today!
