We've gotten into the habit of Tuesdays being "Take-out Tuesday," but this Tuesday is also Giving Tuesday.

Typically Giving Tuesday is the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, but due to hardships that have fallen upon many nonprofits in the time of coronavirus, it's happening again now.

It's a chance for you to donate to nonprofits like the Humane Society of Pinellas, who is using #GivingTuesdayNow.

The Community Foundation of Tampa Bay is urging people to visit the Nonprofit Needs List, which have urgent requests from more than 450 local nonprofits totally more than $20 million.

Ruth Eckerd Hall and Wheelchairs 4 Kids are also participating and collecting donations for Giving Tuesday Now.
