Everyone is aware of Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday, but Giving Tuesday is an opportunity for you to donate to a charity or volunteer for one.

There are tons of organizations that you could donate towards and help ensure that they have a future in our area.  The United Way, Salvation Army, Community Santa, Catholic Charities, Open Door and Food Bank are just some of the organizations that come to mind.

Today, I challenge you to decide how you'd like to give, whether it be a monetary donation, volunteering to ring bells or even donate blood at a blood drive. Maybe you can see how your company can put on a fun event.

I think this idea was a good one since giving is what the holiday spirit is all about.  The more we can help a cause, the better the world will be.

What do you plan to do?
