#GivingTuesday inspires personal philanthropy and encourages bigger, better and smarter charitable giving during the holiday season, showing that theworld truly gives as good as it gets. The third annual #GivingTuesday will take place on December 2, 2014.
It works like this. On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. It’s a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give something more. Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving. Join and be a part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity.
How do I plan to participate? Well, for one, I’ll be working at a non-profit and I’ll be shouting about my efforts and those of the people I work with, so stay tuned for actual photos and news from within.
In addition, I’ll be supporting a few initiatives I’m involved with and that are close to my heart: St. Jude, ONE, Shot at Life, Women in Prison, Every Mother Counts, Mothers & More and Mothers2Mothers.
I’ll also be giving food to the local Food Pantry, an all-volunteer coalition of community organizations, houses of worship, and concerned citizens dedicated to assisting local families who need food. They run a food pantry that distributes a nutritional bag of groceries providing four days of meals, twice a month.
I will also be posting a Crowdriser campaign here on The Culture Mom.
