Kristin Lenz is a social worker and writer who blogs at YA Fusion. To gear up for the holiday season, she has a tip about giving. Read on to learn about #GivingTuesday.
Everyone is familiar with Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday, but there’s a new movement, and it’s all about giving. #GivingTuesday was created last year as an initiative to celebrate and encourage charitable activities. It’s a day for giving back.
Visit #GivingTuesday for ideas and inspiration about how you can contribute, and be prepared to join the movement next year. Charitable giving is something we tend to be quiet about. We feel like we should be humble. It doesn't feel right to say, "Look what I did!" But the more people know about your efforts, the more likely they are to join you or support another cause that's important to them.
For more tips about donations, microloans, or volunteering your time, stop by YA Fusion and read Kristin’s post. The blog team is giving a shout out to some of their favorite charities and sharing their book bounty with a giveaway. They’d love to hear your recommendations, too.
