Counting Down to #GivingTuesday

 

Only two weeks until #GivingTuesday. As you know, just as Black Friday and Cyber Monday are big shopping days, #GivingTuesday is a day dedicated to giving back. “On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give,” the Giving Tuesday website explains.

On the website, some motivating and inspiring facts have been shared. DonorPerfect released data about the impact of #GivingTuesday on the year-end giving season and here were their findings:
