Where you should Donate this Giving Tuesday in the Boston Area

Giving Tuesday is a wonderful day that rolls around after the Thanksgiving Holiday. Although Giving Tuesday is often overlooked due to the hype around Black Friday or Cyber Monday it is always important to give back, especially during the Holiday Season. If you cannot donate money, time is also a valuable resource to offer. Here is a list of some organizations in Boston accepting Giving Tuesday donations that you should support…

  1. Boston Healthcare for the Homeless Program

I hope this November 30th you are inspired to give back for Giving Tuesday. This list of resources are all great charities to give back to, but I encourage you to find an organization you feel passionate about supporting, whether that be with your time, money, or your resources.
