In The Spirit of Giving…
First it was Black Friday, then Cyber Monday, now a new and much less consumer focused day is trending: GIVING TUESDAY.
Will the lines be around the block to serve at the local food bank? Will folks check their emails throughout the day for latest need that they have the power to meet with just the click of a mouse? Maybe not, but they should. For these are the things that last and will be remembered by you, your children, and the people you touch next door or half a world away.
Please take time this Christmas Season to GIVE of your time, talents, and resources and to teach your children to do the same. Your blessing will be far greater than anything found on Amazon. For those that need some ideas, below are some links you can use as your GUIDE to GIVING. Any amount that you can give towards the below causes will be appreciated.
