We've had Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday. Will donating to charity ever be as popular as shopping during the holiday season?
A partnership of nonprofits hopes so. There's a new campaign asking you to open your wallet for Giving Tuesday.
The Giving Tuesday website says the effort, coming on the heels of days devoted to consumerism, is designed "to create a national day of giving at the start of the annual holiday season. It celebrates and encourages charitable activities that support nonprofit organizations."
Here in Arlington, Arms Around Arlington Center for Cancer Support & Education is part of the initiative. Nearby, the Brattle Film Foundation, which supports Harvard Square's Brattle Theatre, is also participating.
The effort includes the Twitter hashtag #GivingTuesday, designed to help spread the word.
