Every year after competing for the best deals on black Friday and cyber Monday, we come together and kick off the holiday gift-giving season with #GivingTuesday. This year on Tuesday, November 28th, Revolutions Bicycle Co-Op is focusing their #GivingTuesday campaign on providing teens in South Memphis with a viable means of transportation instead of applying the funds to their own nonprofit. With a $300 donation, you can provide transportation to and from school, work, and after-school activities for a local teenager.
