Charitable Startups to Check Out on Giving Tuesday

Charitable Startups to Check Out on Giving Tuesday

Lost in the hustle and bustle of our spending holidays like Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday, is Giving Tuesday. Americans are asked to dig deep and donate to their favorite charities.

The stretch of consumer holidays that follow Thanksgiving ends with Giving Tuesday, when people are encouraged to donate to local charities.

Now consumers are being urged to open their wallets for "Giving Tuesday" (sometimes written #GivingTuesday), a day to raise funds for charitable causes.

One of the groups is the Salvation Army.

You can find the location of a Salvation Army Shelter here. For more information please visit: https://www.charitynavigator.org/-- SHARE YOUR STORY Do you have an issue with a company that you haven't been able to resolve?

The match for donations on Facebook will begin at 8 a.m. They make hashtag donations on social media possible. Also beware if the charity won't provide proof that your donation is tax deductible. With #donate, there's no long donation form or complicated sign-up process. But with all of the charities out there, how do you choose?

Startups Give Back is the volunteering event where startups get out of their offices and work together to help nonprofits in their communities. There is no risk and it will never cost you more than buying from the official retailer.

"There are a lot of charities out there that use names that are strikingly similar to the names of organizations we all recognize", said Karin Kunstler-Goldman with the New York State Attorney General's Charities Bureau.

Of course, we also understand that people may want to help, but aren't in a position to assist monetarily right now.
