SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- Consumers are now opening their wallets for Giving Tuesday, a day dedicated to giving back.

The day began in 2012 and was started by 92nd Street Y and the United Nations Foundation.

A number of San Diego charities are participating in Giving Tuesday this year.

All San Diego Chipotles are donating 50 percent of their proceeds to the Rady Children’s Hospital from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.
