Are You Ready for #GivingTuesday? November 27, 2012

Do you love the holidays? Love shopping? Love the mystery of not knowing what presents await you under the tree?

I'm sure all my McKinney Mommas readers have heard about Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Hey, I love a good deal as much as anybody.  

But, have you heard about #GivingTuesday?



Here's a question::

Do you spend as much time looking into where you can volunteer this holiday, as you do hunting down the best Cyber Monday deals online?

Or, planning a map of how many stores you can shop before noon on Black Friday, as you do figuring how you can balance your budget so you can give to your favorite charitable organization this season. 


#GivingTuesday is not a new thing.

It's a call to action, encouraging everyone in America to partner with their neighbor and show that the holidays are not just for shopping and presents - rather it's about joining hands with our community and supporting each other wherever it's needed. 

Are you in on November 27th?

Giving Tuesday!

Click on the above badge for ideas on how you can help your community and participate in #GivingTuesday!

Here are just a few ideas:
  1. Find a place in your community where you can volunteer - http://www.volunteermatch.org/
  2. Home Treasure Hunt! Take a look around the house for unused dishes, toys, books, and clothes. Donate to a local charity!
  3. Find a walk, bike ride, or run supporting a cause that means something to your family. Rally your family members, and neighbors to support you. Set a goal and raise it for your cause.

I think that we'll all be able to enjoy the holiday season even more, if we know we've given something back to our community by supporting #GivingTuesday

Tell me what you plan to do between now and November 27th to celebrate and support #GivingTuesday?
