#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.
This year, UNC Charlotte's campus community will sign holiday cards to send to troops who are deployed over the holidays.
Students volunteers will also collect donations to send the "Pride of Niner Nation" Marching Band to Normandy, France, to perform at the 74th Anniversary of D-Day Allied Invasion and the end of World War II. Visit crowdfund.uncc.edu/Normandy for more information.
Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
#GivingTuesday locations across campus: Prospector, Cato Courtyard, Popp Martin Student Union, EPIC
