Be wonderful this time of year4 Min.
It’s official, the holiday season has begun. As soon as the last tasty mouthful of Thanksgiving pie disappears, the holiday music starts and the holiday sale emails fly into your inbox at an alarming rate. Between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, the push to “buy buy buy” is immediate and aggressive.
Life is busy, we are all guilty of trying to do too many things in too few hours. Technology gives us the ability to work (or shop) from anywhere, around the clock. But it also steals our attention and monopolizes our time. Call us old-fashioned, but we believe the holidays are about people, not purchases. So we are embracing the idea of a festive holiday season that looks beyond the immediate pressures of the season and instead places our attention on things that have a positive impact on the people around us.
Giving Tuesday is an opportunity to start the holiday season in a truly meaningful way. This November 27th, we invite you to join the movement and give. It could be your time, a financial donation or the power of your voice in your local community.
“It’s a simple idea. Whether you come together with your family, your community, your company or your organization, find a way to give back and then share your idea”. www.givingtuesday.org
Here are a few of our favorite groups, all of whom do important work in our community and beyond. Groups that we choose to give our time, resources and support to throughout the year. Find the people and groups in your community who do good work and could use your help. While the need can feel overwhelming at times, if we all offer a little of ourselves, we will make a big difference.
