As the frenzy of the holiday season begins, in the midst of cyber sales or screaming discounts, let’s all pause on Tuesday, November 27 and take part in Giving Tuesday.
Giving Tuesday was created to re-focus the season of giving, as a reminder that there is more to whatever holiday you celebrate than consumerism, commercialism, and consumption. In 2012, the 92nd Street Y and the United Nations Foundation came together to designate a day that was about celebrating the generosity of giving. The movement has taken off, with millions of people and thousands of companies participating in over 150 countries across the world.
Pick a cause that’s near and dear to your heart and make a donation, or volunteer today. Better yet, pick several.
We can all make a difference, if we all try!
