After a busy, long weekend of shopping, you have a chance to give back to your community. Tomorrow is ‘Giving Tuesday,’ the global movement kicking off the charitable season.

Millions of people across the world will make donations online to their favorite non-profits. 

Erin Fessler, VP of Communications for the Erie Community Foundation, says, “When they receive an end of the year gift or somebody establishes an endowment at the Erie Community Foundation to benefit them forever, that can make the difference whether or not a non-profit survives or doesn’t. Non-profits really help those who are less fortunate in our community and we need that, we need that work to be done.”

Facebook is teaming up with Paypal to match donations made through the social media site up to $7 million.
