#GivingTuesday is Coming! But What Is It?

Have you heard about something called #GivingTuesday? Are you wondering what it is?

#GivingTuesday is a movement to create a national day of charitable giving. It falls on the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving. Why then? To counterbalance the frenzy of shopping that happens on Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Zakat Foundation of America (ZF) will be joining the #GivingTuesday movement for the second time this year. In 2013 generous donors contributed toward the education and skill training of refugee women in Kenya. What cause will ZF highlight through #GivingTuesday this year? And how can you help?

You will just have to stay tuned and find out!

The first #GivingTuesday took place on November, 27, 2012. Astonishingly, more than 50 million people worldwide spread the word about #GivingTuesday on social media – resulting in milestone trending on Twitter – and millions were raised to support charitable causes around the world.
