First Black Friday
Then Cyber Monday
Now Giving Tuesday
One of my favorite sayings is “Its better to give than to receive”. I believe this to be true as I think through the gifts I want to give my family members. I can picture each face as they open the gift, and hope it is something that will bring a smile to their face. I enjoy the whole process!
This year, we are challenged to take it a step further…to move beyond our family and friends. To give to someone or something that touches us. #GivingTuesday
So what is Giving Tuesday?
#GivingTuesday™ (#GT) is a movement to create a national day of giving to kick off the giving season added to the calendar on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The second annual GivingTuesday is on December 2, 2014. In the same way that retail stores take part in Black Friday, we want the giving community to come together for #GivingTuesday. We ask that partners create and commit to a project for/on #GivingTuesday and then help spread the word to their networks.
Let’s get to giving people!
