From Black Friday to Cyber Monday, many New Jerseyans have spent the past few days getting toys, trees and trimmings for the holiday season. But Dec. 3, known as Giving Tuesday, provides an opportunity to do some giving.

Last year, the day of charitable giving resulted in more than $400 million raised for a variety of causes around the world, and the organization says that donations have been going up.
