Invest in the Power of Women Entrepreneurs
#GivingTuesday, now in its fifth year, is a global day dedicated to giving back. Occurring this year on November 29th, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving and is as widely recognized as Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday to kick off the holiday season.
The movement inspires people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to the nonprofit, charities and causes they support.
