#GiveBR: Donating to local nonprofit organizations on Giving Tuesday

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - There's Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and Giving Tuesday.

While the weekend may have been all about shopping, Tuesday is all about giving back.

Giving Tuesday is a global and nationwide campaign to get people to donate their time, money, goods or services. The day of giving always follows the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

The Capital City is specifically participating through the hashtag #GiveBR. The Louisiana Association of Nonprofit Organizations, or LANO, is hosting the the local initiative.

Organizers have compiled a list of over 100 local nonprofit organizations for people to donate to. That can be found HERE.

LANO is hosting a rally on the steps of the State Capitol at 8 a.m. to launch the #GiveBR campaign.
