(KCBD) - We give thanks on Thanksgiving, go to the mall on Black Friday, and browse the web on Cyber Monday. Now, we have a day dedicated to giving back and making our world and community a better place.
#GivingTuesday was founded in 2012 by New York's 92nd Street Y in partnership with the United Nations Foundation. Together, a team of influencers and founding partners launched a global movement that has engaged over 30,000 organizations worldwide.
On #GivingTuesday (the Tuesday after Thanksgiving - this year on November 28, 2017), nonprofits, families, businesses, and students around the world come together for one common purpose: To celebrate generosity and to give.
#GivingTuesdayLBK is a day dedicated to bringing the City of Lubbock together to encourage generosity and to make giving history for local charities. Let's come together to give big and help all nonprofits do even more good in our community!
