On Tuesday, November 29, 2016, San Diego Junior Theatre will join other charities to harness the collective power of individuals in celebrating generosity worldwide on #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving.
Each year #GivingTuesday is held on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving and the big shopping events, including Black Friday and Cyber Monday, to kick off the holiday giving season and inspire a culture of philanthropy, transforming how people think and talk about and participate in the giving season.
