What is #GivingTuesday?

We have a day for giving thanks and two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back.

#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partners -- charities, families, businesses, and individuals -- to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, this year -- November 29, 2016, to kick-off the holiday giving season and to inspire people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities and to give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they support.

On Tuesday, November 29, 2016, people around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give to the causes they love.

And this year, Young at Heart is blessed to have a guardian angel is matching your donation to Young at Heart dollar-for-dollar, up to $10,000!
