After the hustle and bustle of the Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping frenzy, today is the day when people around the world are encouraged to donate their time, and money, and perform acts of kindness. 'Giving Tuesday' reminds us to shift our focus to our communities, and the many organizations who help those in need, provide cultural experiences, and opportunities to help our neighbors. You can help local groups such as LARC, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Acadiana, Faith House, Miles Perret Cancer Services, Healing House, Shoeboxes for Seniors, Home for the Holidays or any one of the many organizations here, or perhaps a national charity such as the USOSt. Jude Children's Research Hospital, or the Salvation Army.
