Have you ever heard of #GivingTuesday?  It follows on the heels of Black Friday, Shop Local Saturday and Cyber Monday, as a way for us all to remember that this time of year can be just as much about giving as it can be about shopping.

Well, we have some great news!  In honor of #GivingTuesday, Facebook is partnering with PayPal to match donations to non-profits who are on Facebook, up to a total of $7 million!  How does it work?  From Facebook:
