18 Jul 2014 - 09:32 by michelle.foster

#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving and this year it’s taking place on 2 December.

Whether it’s making a donation, volunteering your time or just spreading the word at the start of the Christmas shopping season, #GivingTuesday is a call to action for everyone who wants to give something back.
