Giving Tuesday (December 3, 2019) is an international day of charitable giving at the beginning of the holiday season, immediately following Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
Many stores are participating today; some are matching their customers’ donations while others are donating a portion, or all, of the proceeds from today’s sales to charities. Meanwhile, brands like Bombas and TOMS do this every day; they offer a buy-one-give-one model all year long.
If you’re all shopped out after Cyber Monday but still want to give back, New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof puts together an annual charitable “gifts with meaning” guide (stand-by for the 2019 issue) with charities to consider donating to, and Givewell.org lists which charitable causes get the most bang for the buck. Even apps like Charity Miles turn your physical activity into charitable donations.
