The third annual #GivingTuesday, which is held the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, serves as a global day dedicated to generosity.

The movement's aim is to encourage generosity and charity through volunteering and giving to non-profit organizations.

Here are some ways you can participate in #GivingTuesday.

- Share a memory on social media with the hashtag #GiveAMemory and Blinkbuggy, a digital photo album app and website, will donate $1 to Baby Buggy, a non-profit organization which helps families under financial strain with items such as baby equipment and related services. blinkbuggy.com

 

- Enough is Enough (internetsafety101.org) is trying to raise $20,000 to protect children from online dangers. You can make a tax deductible donation to the organization or shop at smile.amazon.com, where a portion of your purchase price will be donated.
