"Shop til you drop" seems to be the theme on Black Friday.

But next week is all about Giving Tuesday.

The National Philanthropic Trust says it's a time to take a break from buying, and get the whole family involved in helping your community.

"It's not just the government's job, it's not just companies or individuals, it's really everybody together who participate in Giving Tuesday, it's all our responsibility," said Eileen Heisman, CEO National Philanthropic Trust.
