To me, #GivingTuesday is one of the best commercialized ways to spotlight giving and service over self. Isn’t that what Thanksgiving and the Christmas and holiday season are all about?
In our family, kindness is most important. It makes me far prouder to hear that my child invited a left out child to sit with him at lunch than to have him get a perfect spelling test grade. Seriously, what’s really important?
After a big turkey dinner and time with family, after dabbling in Black Friday weekend sales, I love the idea of kicking off the season with #GivingTuesday.
How do you make giving and service a tradition in your family? What ways do you help your kids prioritize serving? What will you give during this season of giving – time, money, blood, food?
Here’s a round up of #GivingTuesday news, posts, and ways to give back.
Nearest to my heart, please check out the Kampala Children’s Centre for Hope and Wellness.
