Six ways your company can get involved in #GivingTuesday

What’s Giving Tuesday, I hear you ask? Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving and takes place on Tuesday 27th November. It follows after Black Friday and Cyber Monday to counteract the consumerism of those two days. It’s about making one day count by giving time or money to good causes and it’s really easy to get your company involved. Last year it raised over $300 million globally!
