    Taking place on December 2, 2014 – the Tuesday after Thanksgiving – #GivingTuesday will use social media to create a global moment for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and the spirit of giving. Similar to how Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become days that are, today, synonymous with holiday shopping, now we have a day dedicated to giving back. This year, the Austen Riggs Center is proud to be a #GivingTuesday partner and to join in this celebration of philanthropy.
