Today is #GivingTuesday!

giving-640

Along with scrumptious turkey meals, last week also brought us Grey Thursday, Black Friday, and Small Business Saturday.  Yesterday was Cyber Monday.  Today launches a different kind of “shopping day.”  It’s called Giving Tuesday and it’s a day that retailers, charities, online organizations, community centers, individuals, families and others come together to promote GIVING.  This day is a call to action with the goal is to help #GivingTuesday become a major part of the holiday season, putting giving upfront in November rather than an afterthought in December or the New Year.

A group of heavy hitters (UN Foundation, Mashable, Facebook, among others) got together and came up with the concept. They’ve also partnered with companies like Sony, Skye, Microsoft, and Groupon, more than 2,000 recognized partners in all–from all 50 states.  Some are either registered charities with a specific #GivingTuesday initiative, and some for-profit businesses, schools, religious or community groups who have committed to spearhead a project that will benefit at least one 501(c)3.  This is  an umbrella under which so many exciting projects will take place!  We are not a funding organization and each partner organization is responsible for its own initiative.

Here’s how you can help.  Use this link to find organizations in your own community.  Get involved.  You can give time or money–that’s your decision.  But give from your heart.  And be sure to follow the hashtag, #GivingTuesday!  We’re all in this together!
