What impact could YOUR holiday gifts make? #GivingTuesday

Over the Thanksgiving weekend, 141 million people spent an average of $400 each during the first “official” weekend of the holiday shopping season. Over the course of the full  season, shoppers will spend an average of $750 on holiday gifts for loved ones.
