Like Black Friday, Giving Tuesday originated in the U.S. but it has a completely different aim. Instead of a day of consumerism, it's a day of charity. It's a new Canadian movement for giving and volunteering that encourages all of us to join together with charities, companies and other individuals to rally around our favourite causes. Not a bad idea huh?
