So #GivingTuesday was last week. The big push to encourage us all to focus on making the world a better place was for whatever reason focused on Dec. 3. But at Social Media Explorer, we have made it a point to celebrate wonderful non-profits and causes every Tuesday.
We don’t need an organized day on the calendar to give.
Nichole Kelly started SME off on the giving path last Christmas. Since then, C.C. Chapman and Marc Pitman, two of the most incredibly kind and passionate people you’ll meet, have given us profiles of dozens of organizations and causes to support. If you’d like to review, we’ve got a whole category of #GivingTuesday posts here.
Anyone else sick of the endless stream of news stories about Black Friday and Cyber Monday? I know I am.
Yet, I have not seen a single news story about Giving Tuesday which is today!
It’s a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give something more. Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving. Be a part of a national celebration of our great tradition of generosity.
Instead of only focusing in on how you can spend money on yourself and gifts for others, this day was created so you could take some of your energy and dollars and put them towards worthy causes.
