Today a new and hopefully popular tradition begins. Major corporations and philanthropic organizations have banded together to participate in "Giving Tuesday". This is a day when Americans are supposed to give back to their communities rather than simply consuming as happens on Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
But as all Sikhs know, before Giving Tuesday there was dasvandh, the Sikh tradition of giving our treasure and time in support of a good cause.
We encourage you to support our good work in the spirit of dasvandh and Giving Tuesday. Everyday the Sikh Coalition works tirelessly to protect not just Sikh rights, but the rights of all Americans.

Throughout the day we will be posting messages on our facebook and twitter pages using the hashtags #dasvandh and #givingtuesday. This is our way of sharing the powerful Sikh tradition of giving while participating in this new and great American tradition.
PS - Dasvandh has no expiration date and no midnight cutoffs. You can forward this to as many friends and family members as often and for as long as you like :)
