At Thanksgiving dinner, we all saved the best for last. (It was the pumpkin pie, of course). The same can be said for the series of days that follows the holiday. There’s Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday. But we save the best for last: #GivingTuesday!

The second-annual occasion calls upon us all to start the holiday season in its true spirit—a spirit of sharing, generosity, and warmth. At Action Against Hunger, we see that generous spirit in the communities we serve around the world. You can celebrate it too by using the hashtag #GivingTuesday online to spread the word to family and friends, and by making a gift to your favorite nonprofit.

If you’re thinking about giving to Action Against Hunger on #GivingTuesday, you can feel good about supporting us: 91 cents of every dollar donated goes directly to our lifesaving programs, and for that we receive top ratings for efficiency from nonprofit watch groups. So whether you give to help survivors of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, or to help families in more than 40 countries access good nutrition and safe water, your gift will go to those who need it most.

Thank you for your tremendous support, on #GivingTuesday and every day!
