Giving Tuesday is a day of celebration that is all about “GIVING”. It is the Tuesday after the celebration of the Thanksgiving in the United States. It was first started in the US in 2012 by the 92nd Street Y. Giving Tuesday was a response to Black Friday and Cyber Monday which is the beginning of Christmas shopping season in the US. The movement Giving Tuesday is built to create a national holiday of giving at the beginning of Christmas season.
Now Giving Tuesday or #GivingTuesday becomes a global day celebration of giving. On December 1, 2015 is #GivingTuesday a celebration of giving back. Everyone is encouraged to do a simple idea of giving. Giving and sharing comes from the heart, it doesn’t ask a huge amount of money from our pockets for us to be able to give to someone else or to give back. We can give in our own little way in our family, community or in any organization that we belong. We can give by giving our time, helping and donating as long as it comes from our hearts.

Here in Bitlanders aside from earning through socializing and posting content, we also get to share and donate to Bitcharities of our choice. Each time we earn from reward, buy something in the shop we are helping a charity, through micro donations. And if we are generous we can also donate to the lists of nonprofit organizations on Bitcharities. This part of a simple act of giving is what make Bitlanders different from rest social media site. I am grateful that Bitlanders gave us a chance to see the world of various nonprofit organization and write the topic regarding GIV.NYC.
