After Cyber Monday, There’s #GivingTuesday

While most corporate employees will be reveling in a couple of days off this weekend, things are kicking into high gear in the business world, especially for those in the retail field.

First, there’s the longstanding tradition of Black Friday, with its nationwide sales, mega deals, and crazy hours. Up next is Small Business Saturday, which turns the focus to small businesses and encourages shoppers to patronize establishments in their local area.

After that, it’s on to Cyber Monday, when the deals and the shoppers collide online.

Then what?

Giving Tuesday,” the latest addition to the chain of post-Thanksgiving holidays, was founded in 2012 by 92nd Street Y and the United Nations Foundation to focus on giving back.

Whether you’re a global corporation or a small, family-run business, you can participate in Giving Tuesday. This article from Forbes can help you understand what #GivingTuesday might mean for you or your business.

Happy shopping, and grateful giving.
