MILWAUKEE — Tuesday, November 27th was “Giving Tuesday,” as millions donated to charities in honor of the holiday season. Following the massive spending on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, the Wisconsin Better Business Bureau is urging folks to spend a little extra to give back.

A new website explains how to help over 2,000 charities across the country, but the BBB has also provided some tips in case a charity isn’t on the approved “Giving Tuesday” list.

The BBB says sites like Give.org and BBB.org can help with researching charities. 

The BBB also warns donors to be mindful of any charity or group using high-pressure or emotional pitches. Officials say giving on the spot is never necessary. Money will be welcomed regardless of when it is donated.

The BBB also urges donors to confirm charities are the charities donors want to give to. Many groups have similar sounding names or official looking seals that can be confusing without a closer look.

    Howdy this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if
    blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with
    HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted
    to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
