Giving Tuesday is a national movement dedicated to making the holidays a little brighter by giving back.
There are holidays dedicated to getting deals, and giving thanks, but this holiday is for giving back.
There are plenty of local charities that could use the help from the "Giving Tuesday" movement, including the United Way in Harrison County.
Executive Director of the United Way of Harrison County, Marie Battles, said that it's great to give back on a special day, but every day is a good day to give back to your community.
"After Cyber Monday and everyone spending so much money on important gifts on family and friends, it's always good to think back about what the meaning of giving is. Giving to those who may need a little help not just during Christmas but year round as well is important. By giving to the United Way you can help the entire year," Battles said.
