Giving Tuesday Helps Start the Season

It's a national effort to kick off the giving season. Now in its second year, Giving Tuesday had more than 2,500 partners across the U.S., and more than $10 million in donations came in last year. Here in the Valley, the Red Cross says if you can't contribute financially, your time is just as important.
You may have taken part in Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but now it's time for Giving Tuesday.

It's a national effort to kick off the giving season.

Now in its second year, Giving Tuesday had more than 2,500 partners across the U.S., and more than $10 million in donations came in last year.

Here in the Valley, the Red Cross says if you can't contribute financially, your time is just as important.

The group's force is 95-percent volunteers, and always in need of more.

"We have volunteers who, anytime there is a storm, they'll be on standby. They say hey I'm ready to go and they'll be calling us, what do you need me to do. And that is the best thing that a volunteer can do is be there and be available and know what you want to do with an organization," said Nikki Wessley, chapter executive of the Red Cross of the Wabash Valley.
