There’s Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday – and today is Giving Tuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back!
It’s the third year for this event, and Doing Good Together, a local organization dedicated to helping families find ways to do good for the community together, has some ideas for how to participate in #Giving Tuesday:
1) Choose a Big-Hearted Families project
2) Check out #GivingTuesday Ideas for Families
3) Donate to one of your favorite charities
4) Come up with a project of your own!
Samara of Simplicity in the Suburbs shared a great idea her daughter Evie came up with: Giving bags with snacks, water and other needs to homeless people you encounter. You can read about her idea here.
Earlier this season I wrote a post called “3 Ways Frugal Families can Make a Difference” with ideas for how even busy and cash-strapped families can help others in need.
What ways does your family volunteer and help others in need?
