Giving Tuesday 2016
Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. It's celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the United States) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many people focus on their holiday and year-end giving. We'll be sharing a variety of ways you can give back locally from now through Tuesday, November 29, 2016. One small, easy way to give while you shop is to support Second Chances when you shop on Every time you shop through our page link, designating Second Chances as your Smile beneficiary, we get .5% of your purchase - and it doesn't cost you anything!
