"Giving Tuesday" comes at a time when many charities are struggling to meet their needs in this difficult economy. Unfortunately charitable giving is seen as a discretionary expense and is one of the first things to go in a down economy. The discussions in Congress these days of eliminating or capping deductions for charitable giving would only make this situation worse. Charitable giving has been something that has defined the American culture and now more than ever there should be an emphasis on the importance of giving to others.
