The #GivingTuesday website is chock full of resources and kits for advance planning, particularly for the nonprofit organizations that take part. And, they have come on board big time. In 2016, U.S.-based charities raised $168 million – up 44% over the year before!

My marketing pal, George Weiner of Whole Whale, predicts that this year Americans will raise $201 million. Anyone taking bets? 😉
