Dec. 2 is #GivingTuesday; local charities hope #MarylandGivesMore
BY REBECCA BENNETT — Most of us had an opportunity to eat Turkey on Thanksgiving, shop for deals during Black/Green Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday. According to its website, “#GivingTuesday was founded in 2012 by New York’s 92nd Street Y in partnership with the United Nations Foundation.”
According to Forbes.com:
“A lot of people get through the holidays, and there’s a sense that we want to find a way to connect more meaningfully to more people who don’t have as many things,” Timms said. #GivingTuesday isn’t just about giving money—it can also include donations of coats and food, time and talent, or anything else people want to share with organizations that move them.
