Please mark your calendars for Tuesday November 27th. It is the day when individuals and families throughout the country will do an act of kindness in the community or make a contribution to a favorite cause. It is the day when businesses nationwide will show their collective impact by paying it forward.
November 27th is GivingTuesday.
GivingTuesday is meant to inspire people to take action in a way that will improve our communities and help create a better world. The idea for GivingTuesday began at the 92nd Street Y in New York City and now includes over 270 partners, including Social Good Summit founders Mashable and the United Nations Foundation.
Please join us. Give to the underserved on GivingTuesday or give back in your community by volunteering, donating, and shopping for gifts that donate proceeds to charity.
Simply go to www.givingtuesday.org to learn more about GivingTuesday. The site is filled with ways to get involved, from ideas for giving back to ways of spreading the word. You can also follow along on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/GivingTuesday or on Twitter by following @GivingTues or #GivingTuesday.
Let’s make this season of giving about more than presents. Let’s make this season of giving about giving back.
