The holidays are all about giving: giving gifts, giving love, and giving back. While most people know the dates of all the major fall/winter holidays — Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s — many people don’t know about one of the most important holidays of all: Giving Tuesday.
Giving Tuesday, which takes place every year on the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving, is a movement that focuses on giving back to those in need, whether that’s through charitable donations, volunteering, or just being kind to those around you. Giving Tuesday first started in 2012, and over the past seven years it’s exploded into a worldwide phenomenon. This year, Giving Tuesday takes place on December 3, 2019, and organizations and individuals all over the world plan to participate.
One organization that’s dedicated to making a huge difference this year is T-Mobile. Around the country, more than 37 million people face hunger every day — and families with children are even more likely to struggle with food insecurity. T-Mobile wants to do something to help, so the company has teamed up with Feeding America to provide up to five million meals to Americans in need.
