The Joy of #GivingTuesday - Giving Back Because We Care with Pixel Blue Eyes

Today is a very special day friends. It's #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 1, 2015, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and individuals around the world are coming together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. What a brilliant concept...a global day of giving back to our communities and the charitable causes we care about. Much of the world just spent a lot of time and money on themselves, so today is dedicated to spending on others.
#GivingTuesday was founded in 2012 by New York’s 92nd Street Y, a world-class cultural and community center where people all over the world connect through culture, arts, entertainment and conversation, and in partnership with the United Nations Foundation. Together, with a team of influencers and founding partners, they launched a global movement that has since engaged over 30,000 organizations worldwide. The website has all kinds of information on global efforts, social media events, and news on the amazing efforts that are being made to give to others in profound, generous and loving ways.

And #GivingTuesday isn't just for one day. It kicks off the entire season of giving. Love is in the air and this is the kind of movement I am proud of! So get out there and start giving. It doesn't matter how small, it all matters. Talk about it, tweet about it, give to family, friends, your local shelter. Give your time, your love, a little funds if you have them. Give 10 minutes. Give 10 hours. Give $1. Give $10. The point is just to get out of yourself and GIVE.
I'd love to hear how you are giving back friends! Leave me a comment and let me know!
