We all know about "Black Friday" and "Cyber Monday," but did you know there was a day dedicated to help you get over that retail hangover to give back? Tuesday, November 29 marks "Giving Tuesday." 

The charity-focused day, celebrated on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, encourages everyone to give back to their communities during the holidays. 

"Giving Tuesday" was started in 2012 by the 92nd Street Y and the United Nations Foundation.
