We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.
It’s a simple idea. Tell everyone you can about how you are giving and be a part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity. Although there are nonprofits affiliated with #GivingTuesday, we wanted to remind you about the local nonprofits we have featured here on LiveMom (in no particular order!):
- Impact Austin and Girls Giving Grants
- Mexic-Arte and the Jones Center
- Ruby’s Rainbow
- Libraries of Love
- LIFT Alliance
- Little Helping Hands
- Circle of Health International
- Generous Art
- Ronald McDonald House
What is your favorite local charity?
