After Black Friday and Cyber Monday comes #GivingTuesday, a day created to help kick off the charitable season.

In 2016 #GivingTuesday sparked $168 million in charitable donations worldwide, topping the previous year's tally by 44%.

The global movement was founded in 2012, with the goal of giving back.

Some local groups in need include Greater Lansing Food Bank, St. Vincent Catholic Charities, Salvation Army and the Capital Area Humane Society.

The Better Business Bureau is encouraging donors to give generously today, but also advises donors to do some investigation before giving.

Watch out for name similarities. Before you give, be sure you have the exact name of the charity to avoid a case of mistaken identity. Donations made through Facebook's charitable giving tools were matched up to $50,000 per nonprofit or $1,000 per fundraiser or donate button. Don't succumb to pressure to make an immediate giving decision. Although participation is voluntary, charities that don't disclose any of the requested information to BBB WGA raise a critical red flag for donors.

GiveWell takes a much more selective approach to its donation process than the above platforms, starting with identifying specific charities themselves using a rigorous data-driven analysis.

Be wary of emotional appeals. Visit Give.org to find out your selected charity's disclosure status. Participation in BBB WGA evaluations is voluntary.

Millions across all 50 states and 98 countries are expected to participate in #GivingTuesday and are likely to surpass last year's record of over $180 million in donations.
