With the Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping blitz now over, charities are appealing for a little selflessness on Giving Tuesday.
Dozens of non-profits are encouraging people to donate to their favourite cause on Tuesday under the hashtags #GivingTuesdayCa and #GivingTuesday. Causes range from various diseases-related initiatives to more headline-oriented efforts, such as relief for displaced Rohingya Muslims in Bangladesh.

If you don't have a dollar to give,
you STILL have your time, your focus, your voice. Be generous.
It's #GivingTuesday - an entirely apolitical, unquestionably wonderful tradition I'd urge you to uphold. If you can spare cash, pick a worthy cause and donate (you might consider @lumos). If you can't, think of someone who needs help and help them #TheRealThanksgiving— Jason Isaacs (@jasonsfolly) November 28, 2017
