Along with scrumptious turkey meals, last week also brought us Grey Thursday, Black Friday, and Small Business Saturday. Yesterday was Cyber Monday. Today launches a different kind of “shopping day.” It’s called Giving Tuesday and it’s a day that retailers, charities, online organizations, community centers, individuals, families and others come together to promote GIVING.
