EUREKA - Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday are about getting deals, but today is about giving back.

Giving Tuesday is a national initiative dedicated to giving to local non-profits.

Humboldt County is home to hundreds of non-profits that enrich the lives of our community and Tuesday is an opportunity for the community to show its support back.

The effort is web based so non-profits like Humboldt Botanical Gardens, Morris Gaves and Clark Mseum, and Sequoia Park Zoo all have a button on their website to donate.

“Everybody needs the community support. That's pretty obvious. I think everybody knows that. That the non-profits need their help. And so this is just one way to remind them that we're here. We're here for them but we also need their support,” Susan Tissot of the Humboldt Botanical Gardens, said.
