Take part in #GivingTuesday

November 27, 2018

NORFOLK - Similar to Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday comes another day for spending money — this one aimed at giving to charitable organizations.

Kelly Koepsell, Member Services Director for Nonprofit Association of the Midlands says Giving Tuesday started in 2012, and is an opportunity to give back to your community following the start of the holiday shopping season.

Koepsell says Giving Tuesday continues to grow in popularity.

“Last year Giving Tuesday saw a significant increase in online donations. Just last year, more than $270-million was given to nonprofit and community organizations across the nation, and we’re actually expecting an increase in that this year as well.”

Koepsell says you can also share your donations with #GivingTuesday on social media.

To find charities needing your support go to GivingTuesday.org.
