Giving Tuesday is a day of giving celebrated internationally, encouraging people to give their time and money to worthy causes. The day, known as #GivingTuesday, is celebrated the day after Thanksgiving and usually results in an outpouring of charitable donations.
In addition to the myriad organizations you may already know, there are a great number of groups run by people of color that need your help.
In addition to the efforts seen on Twitter for #GivingTuesday, we asked BET employees about organizations that they care about that they encourage others to donate to.
