                             GIVING TUESDAY

  (Mrs. CAROLYN B. MALONEY of New York asked and was given permission 
to address the House for 1 minute.)
  Mrs. CAROLYN B. MALONEY of New York. Mr. Speaker, we all know about 
Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but I am proud to support Giving 
Tuesday, a national day dedicated to charitable giving and 
  On December 3, Giving Tuesday will harness the collective power of 
charities, families, businesses, and individuals to transform how 
people think about, talk about, and participate in the giving season.
  Launched by the 92nd Street Y in New York City last year, in the 
district that I am privileged to represent, Giving Tuesday inspires 
Americans to take action to improve their local communities and 
strengthen our country.
  Thousands of partners in all 50 States are joining in this national 
movement of individuals and organizations that believe that everyone, 
whether you are a large donor or an individual volunteer, has a role in 
helping to solve the challenges our communities face every day.
  Americans are the most charitable people in the world, and Giving 
Tuesday is a day for us as a Nation to celebrate our spirit of 
  I urge everyone to spread the word about Giving Tuesday to your 
constituents so together we can celebrate the giving season and aid the 
important work of charities and organizations.
