Today is Giving Tuesday and if you're not that familiar with Giving Tuesday, it's a day that encourages people to show their generosity by doing good wherever they can. It could be something as simple as making someone smile or helping a friend or neighbor out. If you want to participate in Giving Tuesday, but you're not really sure how, here are some ideas for you to get involved:
You can give back by volunteering and making a difference to those around you. When you volunteer, you're learning about others and the issues affecting your community.
Lending Your Voice
You as an individual can help make a change in your community by using your voice. It can be as simple as signing something on DoSomething.org or Change.org when you see something you believe in and support.
Every little bit helps even when you don't think it will. You can donate to a nonprofit organization in honor of Giving Tuesday.
Another great way to give back is by donating good to a donation drive. It could be food, toiletries, books, or even clothes.
Sometimes all we need is just the act of being kind to others and vice versa. A small act of kindness can inspire others to do the same. It could be a simple act of kindness like buying someone's coffee or complimenting a stranger, or even sending a simple text to your loved ones.
