Join in on #GivingTuesday: A New Holiday Tradition

We have one day for giving thanks and two for getting deals, wouldn’t it be great if we had a day for giving back?

Welcome Giving Tuesday a new, charitable addition to the week after Thanksgiving!

As the mission statement says, “#GivingTuesday™ is a campaign to create a national day of giving at the start of the annual holiday season. It celebrates and encourages charitable activities that support nonprofit organizations.” On this day there are a variety of ways that you can give back:

  • Volunteer: You can take a little bit of time to volunteer for one of your favorite organizations .
  • Give: You can give money to help support your favorite cause.
  • Advocate: Support your favorite organization by advocating for it via social media.

Like I said in my post on Thanksgiving, I am most thankful for the ways that I have been able to give back. So take a day to give of your time, talent, passions, and money. No gift is too small! Don’t forget to tweet using the hash tag #GivingTuesday!
