WEB EXCLUSIVE After the long holiday weekend of eating lavishly with family and friends and buying a plethora of sale items for yourself and/or for those on your Christmas list, take a day to give back to the community. Giving Tuesday is celebrated the Tuesday after Thanksgiving throughout the world. It’s a day where people come together to “show kindness and generosity by giving their voices, time, money, goods and more to support communities and causes.”
