Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.

*Donate your time by volunteering at one of our classes, workshops, and fundraisers.
*Donate your tummy by participating in our local WeeDine and Share events.
