This is the fourth year for Giving Tuesday, a global philanthropic campaign to inspire people to donate to charities close to home and around the world. It’s also an unofficial kickoff to the charitable giving season when many people focus on end-of-the-year giving.

It’s also become a social media campaign, using the hashtag #GivingTuesday. It’s not just about giving but service and volunteering as well.
