(Newser) – Americans celebrated #GivingTuesday the day after Cyber Monday (and several days of other discounted holiday shopping), reminding us to keep in mind those in need. That effort can come in the form of both money and time spent volunteering, both of which WalletHub tracked to see which US states have the most charitable residents. The site looked at more than a dozen key indicators of giving behavior, including everything from one's share of income offered to those less fortunate, to the share of a state's population that spent time fundraising or gathering up clothing or food. Here, the results:

Most Charitable States

  1. Utah (No. 1 in charitable giving)
  2. Maryland
  3. Minnesota
  4. Wyoming
  5. Wisconsin
