I first heard about Giving Tuesday a couple of years ago and just loved the idea. It’s now a global effort to celebrate generosity and “giving back.”
Giving Tuesday is always the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. The idea is we spend one day giving thanks, two days getting deals (Black Friday and Cyber Monday) and sandwiched in between those last two days is a day we shop at small local businesses (Small Business Saturday). This year’s Giving Tuesday is December 2.
It only makes sense that we dedicate at least one day to giving back, right? Make sure you check out the official site for #GivingTuesday for other ways to share your story and to participate!
I know there’s thousands of nonprofit organizations out there and each one has great things going. That’s why I wanted to give fellow bloggers the opportunity to share what organizations are closest their hearts and to do so in their own words (that’s why I’m requiring actual blogs to be linked not just websites to organizations). So what does your family get involved in? How do you teach your kids to give back? Or maybe there’s an organization that you’re involved with all on your own.
The linky will be open from now until 12 a.m. December 3. If your state has a hashtag, make sure you share that in your post! For example, in Arkansas it’s #GivingTuesdayAR
