Which Ohio cities are the most charitable?


Once the dust settles from Black Friday and Cyber Monday, a chance to give back to the community comes in the form of a global philanthropic campaign: Giving Tuesday.

This is the fifth year that Giving Tuesday has been around and is also a social media campaign, using the hashtag #GivingTuesday.

This campaign was created by a cultural center in New York City called 92nd Street Y and last year raised about $116,000,000 online with the help of 700,000 people in over 70 countries, according to givingtuesday.com.

Anyone can help today by providing some of their time, a donation, a gift or even just the power of your voice in your community.

People all of the world rely on the money raised on this day, including several local places.

Onenewsnow.com created a list of the 50 most generous cities in the U.S. where 76,505 American adults were surveyed to see what percent had donated to charities and nonprofit organizations, including churches and religious organizations in the last decade.
