After Black Friday and Cyber Monday, it can be tough to even think about shopping again — but trust us when we tell you not to put away your credit cards just yet. The Tuesday after Thanksgiving is officially dubbed "Giving Tuesday," a day that encourages people to give back to their communities. And today, select stores are joining in on the fun by donating a portion of sales to charities, matching customer donations, and more. What better way to shop than making a difference while also crossing off the rest of your holiday shopping list?
