School kids in Aurora enjoy book surprise thanks to ‘Giving Tuesday’

AURORA, Colo. -- Some young school students in Aurora hit the jackpot with all kinds of new books thanks to the generosity of one company and the community.

Tuesday was "Giving Tuesday," and this story is what it's all about.

The video shows how a Colorado company is helping an Aurora school where many students have never even owned a book.

There is another day of giving coming up soon. It's Colorado Gives Day and it happens Dec. 6.

The statewide event is aimed at increasing philanthropy and encourages donations to nonprofit organizations. It has raised more than $115 million in the last six years.
