We are through Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday. Today is Giving Tuesday.
It's a growing nationwide effort to inspire people to celebrate philanthropy and the spirit of giving. It can be as simple as a random act of kindness on your own, or you can link up with the more than 7,000 partner agencies nationwide who are taking part. Just head to givingtuesday.org. It is also a hashtag on Twitter.
One business is using Giving Tuesday to double its donations to Foodlink.
5% of purchases of City Dining Cards usually goes to Foodlink, but today that'll double to 10% in honor of Giving Tuesday. The deck of 50 cards features $10 discount cards to local restaurants. You can also get drink decks, which include 25 buy-one-get-one drink cards to local bars.
The dining deck is $20, drink deck is $10, or both for $25.
