Following Black Friday & Cyber Monday, Today Is Giving Tuesday
GIVING TUESDAY IS HERE
Giving Tuesday started officially back in 2012 the Tuesday after Black Friday and Cyber Monday, as a way to make charitable donations, and give of our time and talents to those organizations who give so much to our local communities.
We have so many local charities that help people in our community, that today is a great day to reach out to those charities and make donations to the causes that matter the most to you.

Giving Tuesday is not ONLY about giving charitable donations to your favorite charities. Giving Tuesday is about giving your time, giving gratitude, and giving support to people in need.
Our children learn from our actions. Do something together as a family. For children, that could be coloring a picture for a lonely senior, being kind to your neighbor, or just volunteering your time to your favorite organization.

We could all use a little help from time to time. Think bigger than yourself, and give what you can, whether that be your time, your talents, your kindness, or a donation. It all makes our world a better place.
