"We are incredibly inspired by the way the #GivingTuesday community has embraced this concept for a worldwide movement," said Henry Timms, founder of #GivingTuesday and Executive Director of 92Y. "As we prepare for November 27, we're energized and encouraged by the community's generosity. The levels of creativity, effort and the quality of the new ideas people have contributed and shared are phenomenal."
