The Tuesday following Black Friday is designated as Giving Tuesday, which is a movement that encourages people to help others through donations of money and time.
Thousands of organizations in the state have signed up to participate, including the Orlando and Central Florida area.

Yesterday morning, actor Kevin Bacon visited Give Kids the World (GKTW) Village to help launch the organization’s Ice Cream Challenge.
Bacon filmed a PSA where he squares off against Ethan, one of the resort’s young guests, to see who could eat the most ice cream in six seconds. The loser had to donate $6 to GKTW Village, a 74-acre resort in Kissimmee where children with serious illnesses and their families are treated to dream vacations at no cost.
