    @Stéphanie Delaporte Great question. We're huge fans of Giving Tuesday as well! As yet the stats we're seeing are these: Looks like $45.68 million raised (an increase of 63%). 15,000 nonprofits got involved from 68 countries around the world. Also there were 698,600 mentions of the #GivingTuesday hashtag. Pretty incredible for an organization only two years old!
