Show Your Thanks: #GivingTuesday

pp-thanksgiving

We want to wish you a wonderful, happy Thanksgiving with all those you love. Whether you are near or far, this is a time to give thanks to all of the people in your life. Because every person helped to make you the person that you are today–they made a difference in your life.

This Thanksgiving, we encourage you to support those types of people. The people who are devoting themselves to making our world a better place. As corny as that sounds, it is true.

Thanksgiving has become a weekend full of sales and consuming. We spend money on physical items for ourselves or for others. But sometimes, we need to give more than the physical. We need to give people and organizations the opportunity to help others. And the truth of the matter is, it takes money to keep those organizations running! So, we encourage you to take part in Giving Tuesday! On the Tuesday following Cyber Monday, November 29, we want you to give back to your community!

If you don’t have money to share, that is okay! There are other ways to give back:

  • Donate your time: volunteer
  • Donate your skills: provide pro-bono services
  • Donate your voice: advocate

As ¬†you enjoy your time with family, friends, and loved ones today, don’t forget about the communities that have brought you there.
