This week, millions of people across the country will gather with their friends and families to enjoy a good meal and talk about what they're thankful for. But many others will not enjoy the comforts of home, food and fellowship during the holidays. Next week holds the perfect opportunity to put that attitude of gratitude into action to benefit those less-fortunate folks.
#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.
Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
Nathaniel Wright, an assistant professor in the Texas Tech University Department of Political Science, specializes in nonprofit management and philanthropic fundraising. He is available to discuss #GivingTuesday and why philanthropy matters to society as a whole.
