It's time to remember your favorite charity because Giving Tuesday Lubbock is happening. and you've got a great opportunity to really have an impact and make a difference for those in need.

Annually this event falls on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and many non-profits and charity organizations are counting on your help for much needed help. According to the national website this is their message.

#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.

Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.

One of the best ways to get involved is in your own community. We've created a directory to help you find organizations, charities, events and more in your own community.
