It's #GivingTuesday!

Are you ready for a new tradition?

Giving Tuesday

Each year, we stuff ourselves with green bean casserole, turkey, cranberries, and pumpkin pie, watch football, and read the sale ads to prep for the next few days. We get up Friday (or maybe never go to sleep) and spend it in a flurry of malls. Saturday, we show some love to small business. Monday, we carve time out for some online shopping. And starting last year, many of us culminated the frenzy of Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday with Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesday is a new day for giving back. Today - Tuesday December 3, 2013 - global charities, families, businesses, community centers, students and more come together to create #GivingTuesday.

It’s simple. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give something more. Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving (it's easy - you can even share this blog using the "share" button below!). Be a part of a national celebration of our great tradition of generosity by supporting Rauch or one of the many other great charities in our community and our world.
