Shop, Save & Give More on Giving Tuesday

Once you’ve gobbled up deals on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, it’s time to kick back in front of the fire, fix yourself a plate of leftovers, and congratulate yourself on a successful shopping week, right?…


You don’t want to miss the grand finale of Giving Week, an event that happens to be Giving Assistant’s favorite day of the year (and we bet you can guess why):

Giving Tuesday.

Giving Tuesday is a global movement which kicks off the end-of-year charitable season. Last year, over 700,000 people in 70 different countries volunteered, raised awareness, and donated over $116 Million for various causes…

…all in ONE day!

Your Favorite Brands Get Involved.

Here at Giving Assistant, our mission is to improve the social impact of online shopping year-round, so we LOVE when our favorite stores give back to the community. Here are just a few examples of fantastic brands doing their part on Giving Tuesday:


Your go-to store for baby and children’s clothing is amplifying its partnership with Pajama Program with a one-day “One for One” campaign. For every pajama purchased on November 29th, either in-stores or online, Carter’s will donate a pair of pajamas, up to 100,000! This is the first year Carter’s has launched this Giving Tuesday promotion, so help them make it a huge success and help a child in need get a good night’s sleep.
