#GivingTuesday has already become an amazing global movement, raising close to $46 million in 2014. If I were a betting woman,  I would wager that the 2015 #GivingTuesday effort will raise even more. Afterall, giving on #GivingTuesday grew 95% between 2013 and 2014 and a reported 240% growth between 2013 and 2015. Growth is a good bet.
