You bought up the doorbusters on Black Friday, you supported local shops and restaurants on Small Business Saturday, then browsed the best bargains on Cyber Monday.

Tuesday, November 28th is known as Giving Tuesday, a day to donate to charities and give back to the community.

Giving Tuesday is celebrating its 6th anniversary today to launch the charitable season - the end of year period where people often donate for the holiday.

"On Giving Tuesday we plan to give the gift of survival this winter season, and we're doing that through Backpacks for Heroes".

Follow this link, to find a portal that allows you to search for organizations participating in the challenge in your community. You could double your donations on Facebook.

While there are many worthy causes and charities that a person can donate to, it is important that you know where your money is going. They make hashtag donations on social media possible.

GiveWell takes a much more selective approach to its donation process than the above platforms, starting with identifying specific charities themselves using a rigorous data-driven analysis. With #donate, there's no long donation form or complicated sign-up process. And, in the true spirit of Giving Tuesday, they provide a portion of every purchase to charity. All you have to do is put in your home address, and you'll get a list of organizations for you to choose from.

Of course, we also understand that people may want to help, but aren't in a position to assist monetarily right now.

Check with other organizations to see if they have a dedicated page, or you can give through a national page.
