#GivingTuesday was started in 2012 as a response to commercialization and consumerism in the post-Thanksgiving season. We have two days for getting deals - Black Friday and Cyber Monday. On #GivingTuesday, we have a day for giving back. Together, people are creating a new ritual for our annual calendar. #GivingTuesday is the opening day of the giving season.
