This really is a thing. Giving Tuesday is always the Tuesday after Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Giving Tuesday has become the new tradition to kick off the holiday season by giving to nonprofits and community organizations. It is a global movement that connects people from across the world in an effort to promote philanthropy. There are plenty of local non-profits that could use your help.

Giving Tuesday is on facebook and twitter.  Give to the local charity and then brag about it. I mean, encourage other people to donate.
