On this Giving Tuesday, give a damn about your fellow man. Get a vaccine for humanity’s sake. #COVID has killed 5.2m worldwide.

However, statistics suggest the number could be much greater, and at least four times higher…

Since 2012 GivingTuesday is the day devoted to charitable causes that have been celebrated annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. From donating to nonprofits to volunteering at local community centers, GivingTuesday's website calls the movement "radical generosity." 

GivingTuesday was reportedly started in 2012 by the 92nd Street Y, a New York City nonprofit organization dating back to 1874, as part of a partnership with the United Nations Foundation. Since then, the annual event's reach has grown significantly, with estimated movements in 80 countries and almost 300 community campaigns in the United States alone. Last year, people donated nearly $2.5 billion in the United States, according to a recent GivingTuesday report.
