How To Make Sure Your Donation Goes The Furthest On 'Giving Tuesday'

How'Giving Tuesday ushers in the holidays charitable spirit

Patti Kilvack of Canadian Blood Services in the Kelowna said Giving Tuesday was a flawless day to remind people of their ability to give blood, something in desperate need at this time of the year, especially immediately after Christmas and New Year's on December 26 and January 1.

There was Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and now today is Giving Tuesday, a day to raise money for local charities. It is a social media movement that combines with the generosity of people during the holiday season.

This year, Mountain Brook Mayor Stewart Welch made an official proclamation, declaring November 28 as Giving Tuesday Mountain Brook. "Typically, I like to give to them because I know that the majority of the items that they sell, the money comes back locally for help". But how do you get involved and ensure your donations go the farthest?

"Despite negative stereotypes about millennials, a new national survey of 1,004 American parents shows millennial parents are raising the most charity-conscious generation in history", he wrote. "But, more importantly, they're modeling wise giving habits better than any other generation".

The Federal Trade Commission says avoid any charity that refuses to provide detailed information about its identity or how the donation will be used. How does it profit me?' Giving Tuesday is just a reminder that's not why were given what were given. Donating to a charity is voluntary and it is rare you should need to sign a non-disclosure agreement.
