#GivingTuesday is in full force in West Michigan

Giving Tuesday is today

GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - Giving Tuesday has become an annual day of giving. It follows the Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday -- focusing solely on giving back during the holidays.

A number of nonprofit organizations are taking part this year -- and with all the options, one campaign is breaking it down, while bringing more awareness to the day and cause. 

#GRgives is a city-wide campaign to raise funds, find volunteers and build awareness for local nonprofits. Designed to create a movement around #GivingTuesday in Grand Rapids, #GRgives helps nonprofits band together, promoting one resource for all to share their donations and volunteer opportunities, and one place for our community members to find all the ways they can give.

Other places like Kids Food Basket, Ele's Place, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital are matching donations up to certain amounts.
