Giving Tuesday: A Chance to Give Back During the Holiday Season

Several Rockville-area nonprofits are among the partners encouraging Americans to find a way to help others.

Will donating to charity ever be as popular as shopping during the holiday season?

A partnership of nonprofits hopes so.

Coming on the heels of Black Friday and Cyber Monday—days devoted to consumerism—Giving Tuesday, observed Nov. 27, hopes "to create a national day of giving at the start of the annual holiday season," according to the campaign's website. "It celebrates and encourages charitable activities that support nonprofit organizations."

The effort includes the Twitter hashtag #GivingTuesday, designed to help spread the word.

What do you think? Can a social media push get people giving more of their money and time to charities during the holiday season?
