Giving back on Giving Tuesday

Posted: Updated:
(KPTV) -

Today is Giving Tuesday, and many people got into the spirit of giving back.  

Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan announced they're planning to give away 99 percent of their Facebook shares to charity. 

A couple in Minnesota dropped a check for $500,000 into a Salvation Army kettle. 

Celebrities got into it as well, giving fans suggestions on charities to support.

A little closer to home, hundreds kicked off Giving Tuesday at an event at OMSI. 

But this sums up what it all comes down to.
