A vast conspiracy of charities has designated today as “Giving Tuesday”. Says one of them: “Millions of Americans shopped on Black Friday and CyberMonday. But today is a day for giving back with #GivingTuesday.”
This seems like a dumb choice of day. People who have splurged on food last week and then splurged on gifts last Friday and yesterday would be likely to have nothing but debts to give to charity today. Better to have chosen Tuesday a week ago and grab the money while people still had it.
