This week marked a milestone as the 60-day countdown began until the second annual #GivingTuesday.  This year #GivingTuesday will fall on December 3, kicking off the holiday giving season following widely recognized shopping days in the U.S., Black Friday and Cyber Monday.   This global day dedicated to charitable giving will harness the power of social media and the generosity of people around the globe to bring about real change in their communities and beyond.  
Last week, we announced exciting news: #GivingTuesday is going global!  The number of non-profits and businesses joining the movement is growing toward the goal of 5,000 partners, including multinational corporations and major philanthropic organizations.  With the partnership of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and #GivingTuesday leaders in Mexico, Singapore, Australia, Canada and more, #GivingTuesday will go from a movement that largely took place in the United States last year to a global phenomenon that will reach around the world.
