“On Tuesday, November 27, 2012, the collective power of charities, families, businesses and individuals will transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. #GivingTuesday will create a national movement around the holidays dedicated to giving, similar to how Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become days that are, today, synonymous with holiday shopping.”-www.givingtuesday.org
The day is finally here to let the movement begin! Although many of us give back throughout the year in different ways, today we can harness the joy of giving, and as a nation awaken our collective consciousness toward those in need. Giving comes in many forms, all are precious. Time, Knowledge, Money, Goods, or Your Voice. If you are looking for a place to start check, these are a few of my favorites: www.one.org, The World Food programme, Water.org, Shot@Life, Every Mother Counts or download the Charity Miles app if you are going for a run. Happy Giving!
