Now that Black Friday and Cyber Monday are over, December 1st marks Giving Tuesday.
After that long holiday weekend of shopping and deals, Giving Tuesday is a day Americans are urged to volunteer or make donations to local, national and international charities.

Last year, the hashtag Giving Tuesday was mentioned more than 750-thousand times on Twitter.
