Maryland Nonprofits campaign promotes 'Giving Tuesday'

Printer-friendly version

The two weekdays after Thanksgiving ­— Black Friday and Cyber Monday — are a bargain hunter’s dream, dedicated to sales and shopping. This Tuesday, Maryland Nonprofits hopes to encourage state residents to spend the day giving instead of buying. 

“Giving Tuesday is the philanthropic response to Black Friday and Cyber Monday,” said Allison Albert, membership and marketing director for Maryland Nonprofits, an organization benefiting nonprofits in this state. 

Giving Tuesday is a global movement that was created in 2012 by the United Nations Foundation and the 92nd Street Y, a Jewish cultural and community center in New York City, Albert said. 

Its message is to inspire people worldwide to spend the Tuesday after Thanksgiving making a positive difference, she said.
