Thanksgiving is just around the corner and you hear in the news about all the shopping that will be done on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Millions of dollars are whisked away by people seeking deals on holiday shopping.

What if some of that money, effort and time went to doing good?

Feeding America is part of the #GivingTuesday initiative. Tuesday, November 27 - the Tuesday after Thanksgiving - is being designated as #GivingTuesday. This is an oppurtunity for you to make a difference to give back.

Borrowing a quote from the GivingTuesday website, "We have one day for giving thanks. We have two days for getting deals ... Wouldn't it be great to have a day for giving back?"

The movement is growing on social media and has already been featured in the news like USA Today and the Huffington Post.

How are you going to celebrate this inaugural #GivingTuesday?
