PHOENIX - Following the massive consumerism of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, today's #GivingTuesday campaign is calling on Arizonans to support a variety of charities and nonprofits in their own communities.

Arizona's Children Association is one of several nonprofits in the state partnering on #GivingTuesday efforts. Dayna Gabler, the organization's communications director, says #GivingTuesday is about shifting consumer focus.

"The national effort was just about focusing people's energies on not just buying, but also on giving - and on the value of giving," she says.

According to the #GivingTuesday website, the movement was founded in 2012 by New York's 92nd Street Y in partnership with the United Nations Foundation, and to date has engaged more than 10,000 organizations worldwide.

Gabler says Arizona's Children Association is the state's largest provider of foster care services. She adds a financial donation of any size to the association will benefit kids in several ways.

"We're known for things such as foster care, but we have a number of programs that provide opportunity for cross-utilization for the families that we work with," says Gabler. "We can support them in numerous ways."

Gabler says her organization provides services that benefit more than 40,000 children and families in the state each year. Donations can be made directly to Arizona's Children Association.

More information on donating to other nonprofits is at the #GivingTuesday website at www.GivingTuesday.org.
