There are many ways to celebrate #GivingTuesday and give back to your favorite charitable causes this year:
We've already started to see the Facebook community come together for Giving Tuesday in powerful ways to support the causes they care about - from Emily in California who is fundraising to provide prom dresses to teens who couldn't otherwise afford them to Jill in New Jersey who is fundraising for pediatric cancer research in her son's memory.
Giving back to our communities is important at Facebook, and we're excited to see all the good we can do together this year on #GivingTuesday.
