What is Giving Tuesday? Giving Tuesday is a global giving movement fueled by collaboration and social media. It's celebrated each year on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving as a way to incorporate philanthropy into the giving season.

This year, United Way of Greater Cincinnati and partners around the region are collecting children's books that will be distributed to communities where there is a gap in access to books.

Each year, United Way's young professional donor network, LINC, has spearheaded a volunteer event with the goal of mobilizing the spirit of giving back. LINC is thrilled to power this year's Giving Tuesday volunteer event on Tuesday, November 27 at Taft's Brewporium. Join LINC and hundreds of other volunteers to create "Book Nooks": decorated book shelves filled with children's books that will be donated to United Way agency partners, schools and other nonprofits.
