Following Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday, is one of the most important days kicking off the holiday season: Tuesday, Dec. 2, 2014 is Giving Tuesday, celebrating generosity and giving back in any way that you can.
This video provides countless fabulous ideas for giving back:
I am so inspired by all the wonderful, moving and creative #GivingTuesday posts, that I decided to collect some of them to share with you:

Every day should be a day of giving back. After all, it’s better to give than to receive. How will you give back?
I’ll definitely look for #GiveTuesday. A great follow-up to a Thanksgiving weekend.

Love it, Linda. I love #GivingTuesday too! I’ll be writing about it. The more the merrier to get the word out. I love the choices you provided. Thank you.
