What I am Teaching My Children about Giving
This Tuesday, please join me in being generous in whatever way speaks to you the most, be it by writing a check to a nonprofit whose mission moves you, or by volunteering, or by helping your neighbor in some small way. We are going to be taking a load of donations to the thrift store that we also shop at, because it is our turn to share some items with others! We are going to try to send more toys this time around, so that some of those toys might find themselves under someone else’s Christmas tree this year! Here are a TON of ideas to get your family started!
There are over 2,400 charities, volunteer organizations, corporations and foundations working together in all 50 U.S. states to help get the word out about Giving Tuesday, and to encourage individuals to live out one of the most awesome traits of Americans: generosity. And remember: it doesn’t have to be grand to be good. Every turn taken to be the one to share has a ripple effect. Get ready to start one of those ripples this Tuesday!
