On November 29th, RtE will join thousands of charities to promote Giving Tuesday, America’s national day of giving. Like the quintessentially American Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday is the counter-narrative to consumption.  On this day, people everywhere give, and give big, to the charities they support. We encourage you to mark your calendar and support Rock the Earth on Giving Tuesday.
