The Impact of Supporting Local Non-Profits

This global movement takes place on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and uses the power of social media to inspire acts of generosity. While there are many worthy causes to support throughout the world, one of the most impactful ways to make a difference is by backing our local nonprofits.
