Giving Tuesday

The day following Cyber Monday each year

During a time of year that traditionally has been linked to spending and shopping—often materialistic endeavors that, for many, conflict with the intended spirit of the holiday—Giving Tuesday seeks  fundamentally shift the sentiment around this time of year, from buying to giving. From selfish to selfless. From focusing on the economy to focusing on the community.

Held each year on the day following "Cyber Monday" (right after Thanksgiving), Giving Tuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Since then, it has grown into a year-round global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.


This year, consider a gift to Literacy for Life on this global holiday, and start the giving season off right.
