Giving Tuesday with Akshaya Patra

Giving Tuesday is celebrated on the following Tuesday after the Thanksgiving Day. #Giving Tuesday received a global appeal after its launch in 2012. This day encourages people to indulge in charitable activity whether in the form of kind or donations for non-profit organizations. It could be the simplest of charitable activity like a thought posted in social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter etc.

Giving Tuesday is a way to remember the underserved or the less fortunate during the time when the world celebrates the holiday season. It is observed that the corporate houses and charities come together to commemorate this day. Some examples are Cisco and Hyatt Community Grants have partnered with The Akshaya Patra Foundation to mark this day.
