In one week, from today, we will have gathered with family and friends and felt the overwhelming feeling of gratitude for all of the wonders that surround us. Once the holiday passes, what are we left with? Perhaps it is an urge to be a part of something greater or a desire to give back to the world around us. To start off this hopeful season with a warm feeling in your heart, why not get involved in the act of giving back? #GivingTuesday offers you the opportunity to do just that!

After its founding in 2012, by New York’s 92nd Street Y in partnership with the United Nations Foundation, the #GivingTuesday organization continues to grow their efforts by unifying communities with the charitable act of giving back to the world around us. With the common goal of sharing the joy of giving, this global event strives to strengthen communities with the spirit of gratitude. On November 27th, get involved with #GivingTuesday by making a donation or sharing awareness on the movement of giving back.
