Giving Tuesday: “The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.”

Giving Tuesday is a day to celebrate every single act of generosity." Whether it’s making someone smile, helping a neighbor out, or showing up for an issue or people we care about, we each have something to contribute. Identify your gifts, pick a cause that gets you fired up, and give back – not just today but every day. "

Giving Tuesday originated in 2012 by New York’s 92nd Street Y in partnership with the United Nations Foundation.

Today is a special day each year when organizations, nonprofits, small businesses, and families can come together to give to their community.
