NORFOLK -- It's Giving Tuesday, a national effort to get donations for non-profit groups that help others. 

Among those you can help is Operation Smile, which also will benefit during this week's "Festivus on Copious" .  Festivus is a giving back campaign where Copious, a social media marketplace, sells select designer and celebrity products and proceeds go to their charity of choice.

Boo, voted the world's cutest dog, chose Operation Smile and Boo products are on sale including a book and stuffed animal. Copious will donate $1 to Operation Smile for every new user who signs up through Boo's Facebook page, up to $10,000.

"Festivus on Copious" runs through December 2.

For Giving Tuesday, donations through Operation Smile's online Holiday Giving Catalog will help stock an operating room or provide essential medicine and supplies.

Operation Smile is an international children’s medical charity with more than 5,000 medical volunteers from over 80 countries. Since its founding in 1982, Operation Smile has provided more than 3.5 million healthcare evaluations and conducted over 200,000 free surgeries for children and young adults born with cleft lips, cleft palates and other facial deformities, as well as patients suffering from burns
