FRISCO -- All worn out from Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping? Well, how about Giving Tuesday?

After all, we're smack in the middle of the season of giving, right?

This hashtag holiday is only on year three, and it's already trending strong on social media. #GivingTuesday is the perfect time for folks to help out people who could really use the help!

Take Alesia Seraile for example, she’s a single mom of two and currently going through the kind of hardships life tends to throw at us. But Tuesday, Frisco Family Services surprised her with a new car.

"It’s amazing that someone is nice enough to think of our family, there`s so many other families that could possible use this," Seraile said.

Her brand new baby even came fully insured. Yeah, talk about a sweet deal on wheels!

"The fact that she`s a single mom just trying to make ends meet," explained Nicole Bursey from Frisco Family Services.  "It was not difficult at all for us to select her."

You don't have to be some big time philanthropist to take part in Giving Tuesday. You can always donate time to help a friend move or just brighten someone's day.

Remember, at the end of the day it's the thought that counts, and you don't have to wait until next Tuesday to do that.
