Amid Shopping Is Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesday is Nov. 27.

What’s your favorite charity? Something in the neighborhood, across the nation or at the other side of the world? Tuesday is your chance to make your choice on the stage of hashtag activism.

Labeled as #GivingTuesday, this special Tuesday after Thanksgiving began in 2012 through the efforts of the 92nd Street Y (YM-YWHA) in New York City and the United Nations Foundation. Since then, it has grown and expanded internationally — raising $274 million last year, according to the Chronicle of Philanthropy.

The following are recommendations by The Georgetowner on whom to send your donations tomorrow and the rest of this charitable time of year.

In Georgetown, a good place to start is with your local church, whether Holy Trinity for its 225th anniversary, Christ Church for its 200th year, Georgetown Baptist Church for its programs or other faith communities.

Thinking globally is fine, but local nonprofits make sure neighborhoods thrive. If you wish to add to our list, email editorial@georgetowner.com with your recommendation and we can add it to the lineup.
