“ You make a living by what you get; you make a life by what you give.” –Winston Churchill (1874–1965)
The Tuesday after Thanksgiving in the United States is designated as Giving Tuesday. It is a national day of giving that begins the Christmas and holiday season, and a response to the commercialization and consumerism represented by Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Giving Tuesday kicks off this charitable time when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
