Giving Tuesday

Okay so I know everyone's familiar with Black Friday, Small Biz Saturday and Cyber Monday, but what about Giving Tuesday? Starting this year, Giving Tuesday is an opportunity to include alternative gifts that are simply about giving and giving back. By purchasing a gift through Heifer International, you can help combat hunger and poverty among families in dire need. You can choose from things like a flock of ducks ($20), a family farm care package ($72) or even help someone launch their own business ($365).

The charity reaches 42 countries including China, Nepal, Brazil, Rwanda, Armenia, and the USA. Based on the simple idea of giving families a source of food rather than short-term relief, Heifer has given millions of families the gift of self reliance and hope. This concept really puts a true meaning to the saying, "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime."
