#GivingTuesday Sparks Big Spike in Donations

#GivingTuesday may well become a new holiday tradition, as donors generously responded to charities’ pleas to take time off from shopping days like Cyber Monday and Black Friday to give and volunteer. The amount of online donations processed by Blackbaud, a processor of online gifts, shot up 53 percent to $10 million on Tuesday, compared with the same day last year.
