Following Black Friday and Cyber Monday is the second annual Giving Tuesday.
On Dec. 3 organizers hope that consumers will spread holiday cheer to those less fortunate by participating in donating to charities.
Giving Tuesday is an international movement aimed at raising donations, and awareness, to support nonprofit organizations.
The first Giving Tuesday yielded donations to about 2,600 nonprofits. This year, the event has more than 1,400 organizations participating.
