Welcome to GIVING TUESDAY. What is it? It's a movement to create an international day of charitable giving at the beginning of the Christmas and holiday season. A toast to generosity! Draft beer is only $3/pint all day/all night at Bacchus every Tuesday!
The Giving Tuesday movement is fueled by the power of social media and collaboration and encourages you to donate money or time to a nonprofit organization in your community.
We encourage you to investigate any individual or group you are giving money or time to – or even spending time with.

Charity Gone Wrong
Remember When: Alcoholic beverage company Diageo, which owns brands Johnnie Walker, Smirnoff, Tanqueray and Guinness, among many others, donated 34,560 bottles of water – “enough to fill a semi-truck”, as the company proudly proclaimed in a press release about the donation – to the residents of Tulare County, one of the areas hardest hit by California’s 2016 drought. A month earlier, an investigative piece in Mother Jones magazine had revealed that most bottled water in the United States comes from drought-ridden California, where Arrowhead and Crystal Geyser are soaking up groundwater, and Aquafina and Dasani were filtering and bottling municipal tap water. Oy!
