Many pounds ago, when our family came to live in America I was completely terrified and uncertain about what to expect in a new nation, and having to learn another language. However, we were all warmly embraced with \overwhelming support by total strangers who cared for our well-being. What's happened since then?

I will forever be grateful to the American people, as well as to my teachers for helping me organize my life and offering me the space to share my dreams and goals

Giving Tuesday, aka #GivingTuesday refers to the Tuesday after U.S. Thanksgiving in the #USA. May God bless America, land that I love.

Since this is a global movement to create an international day of giving, one needs to begin at home to prepare for the Christmas and holiday season. You too can play an essential role in providing safety and stability for your most vulnerable neighbors. The USA needs you to join #GivingTueday.

Giving Tuesday, an annual event held the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, is a global day of giving - a concept created by New York’s 92nd Street Y to kick off the charitable season as a time to help others. CBS2's Janelle Burrell reports.

Happy Giving Tuesday! Here are three ways foundations go beyond giving — and influence politics and policy.
