There’s a lot going on today as we get back from the Thanksgiving holiday here in the US. Today’s World Aids Day and the 50th anniversary of the catalystic bus protest by Rosa Parks. This is on the heels of Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday and the topic of this blog post, Giving Tuesday.
You’ve probably heard about some of those other yearly occasions. This last one is relatively new though.
Giving Tuesday is a day when we continue with the momentum started by the Thanksgiving break with a return to the charitable mindset.
This year, in keeping with the campaign I’ve been participating in since October, I’m spreading the word about CNN’s #FlyToFreedom pledge, an international effort to band together to stop human trafficking, also known as slavery.
