After Black Friday and Cyber Monday, cultural events to mark massive consumerism, #GivingTuesday is a movement to create a day dedicated to giving, not getting. The campaign led to an increase in online giving of around 90%, inspired over 500,000 tweets and generated over 1.2B media impressions. Endorsed by the White House, Bill Gates, Selena Gomez, and Snoopy, #GivingTuesday aims to reclaim the true spirit of the holidays.
