Yarn for the Giving: #GivingTuesday

Everybody in the United States, and probably around the world, knows about Black Friday and Cyber Monday, the new national holidays for in-store and online shopping, respectively. But you might not know about their companion, Giving Tuesday.

On the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving (November 29 in 2017), people all across the country donate money, goods, or time to their favorite causes. If you’ve been looking for ways to craft it forward—especially during a season that can seem overly commercial—take a look at the official Giving Tuesday website for all kinds of information. This site provides every resource you can imagine for individuals and organizations who want to give or receive donations.

If you want to evaluate organizations before you give, read this great article from Consumer Reports on how to do your homework.
