"Typically, I like to give to them because I know that the majority of the items that they sell, the money comes back locally for help".

November 28 marks Giving Tuesday, a one-day charitable giving promotion launched in 2012 where people are encouraged to volunteer or make donations to local, national and global charities.

This year, Mountain Brook Mayor Stewart Welch made an official proclamation, declaring November 28 as Giving Tuesday Mountain Brook. It is celebrated on each year on the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving. BBB also says to watch out for name similarity of charities to avoid mistaken identity and giving to the wrong fund. Some scammers are known to name themselves similarly to a well-known charity. Facebook is also waiving its fees for donations made to nonprofits on its platform. The holidays bring a higher frequency of donation requests outside public locations.

#GivingTuesday focuses on giving to organizations, local communities

GiveWell takes a much more selective approach to its donation process than the above platforms, starting with identifying specific charities themselves using a rigorous data-driven analysis. "BBB WGA evaluations can give donors insight into a charity's trustworthiness so that their hard-earned dollars go to charities that operate ethically". Visit Give.org to find out your selected charity's disclosure status. Charities can demonstrate they are trustworthy by agreeing to in-depth evaluations such as the 20 BBB Standards for Charity Accountability.

The first Giving Tuesday was held in 2012, and a year ago, people gave more than $168 million in donations.
