With many people feeling that the holiday season is becoming more and more consumer oriented, there is a small but growing number of movements trying to take back what the season is supposed to be about. One of these is Buy Nothing Day which is celebrated on the same day as Black Friday. And the newly launched idea that I hope will become a much larger movement, Giving Tuesday.

Today is Giving Tuesday! Charities, families, businesses and individuals are coming together to transform the way people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season.

What do Justin Bieber, John Cena, Miley Cyrus, The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart, Buddy Valastro, Nigel Barker and Tiffani Thiessen all have in common?
