“Black Friday, Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday.”

This tag line from the organization's website aptly expresses the ethical importance of #GivingTuesday—the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving—when the world unites to celebrate giving and generosity. Started in 2012 as a way to balance the season of consumerism, #GivingTuesday has been transformed into a global movement celebrating virtuous behavior.

“It’s a simple idea,” the website declares, “Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give something more. Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving.” And so, just days after the US holiday dedicated to giving thanks for our blessings and relationships, we now have a day to show our gratefulness by offering up something of our own.

Here at PROOF, we foster relationships with ordinary people who give in extraordinary ways.
