Giving Tuesday: Today’s the day

Today is Giving Tuesday — the national day of generosity that inspired this column. Here’s a list of all of the nonprofits we’ve profiled since debuting “Giving Tuesdays” in September, with links so that you can give to them today. Plus, I’m including a list of organizations and causes that are close to the hearts of the Registry Tampa Bay team.

I hope that you will consider giving to these and to your own favorite nonprofits today, because community support is crucial to their survival.
