Hello friends! Today I’m excited to share a new movement with you called #GivingTuesday. What is it? Well, as most of you know we start the holiday season with a flurry of advertisements for Black Friday and Cyber Monday. In a new effort to inaugurate the holiday season with a reminder of how important it is to give back in whatever way best suits your life, some amazing organizations have gotten together this year to start #GivingTuesday!
The mission statement of #GivingTuesday is as follows: “#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.” You can take a look and learn more about the founding partners here.

And remember, whether it’s giving of your time by volunteering in your community this holiday season or by making a charitable donation to your chosen cause, every person can make a difference. Get out and get involved in giving!
