Sharing Gratitude, Gifting Hope
After all the hype of shopping around Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday, it can be easy to feel a bit disconnected from what life is really all about. Sometimes the best way to show gratitude and the love we have in our hearts is through service and giving back! That’s what Giving Tuesday is set out to remind us to do.
What is GivingTuesday?
“GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of radical generosity. GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good….
“It’s a simple idea: whether it’s making someone smile, helping a neighbor or stranger out, showing up for an issue or people we care about, or giving some of what we have to those who need our help, every act of generosity counts and everyone has something to contribute toward building the better world we all want to live in.” – givingtuesday.org
When is GivingTuesday?
This movement has impacted the globe for the last ten years, inspiring people and encouraging generosity with a special focus on the same time of the year. As suggested by its name, Giving Tuesday always falls on a Tuesday – every Tuesday, to be specific. However, one Giving Tuesday gets the most attention – the Tuesday after Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
