Summary: Tuesday was officially 'Giving Tuesday', an idea started by a YMCA in New York City in response to the heavy consumerism push of both Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The left focused on its history, while the right featured an op-ed by a popular young Christian social media figure.
Evidence of common ground:
NY Times includes quote that implies this is the antidote to Cyber Monday and Black Friday
Robertson (for Fox News) suggests this is a good pivot from the unhealthy temptation to compare your holiday gifts to other people’s gifts on social media
Common ground: During this (and future) holiday seasons, let’s help those in need rather than spiral into endless consumerism
