Posted on December 3, 2020 at 12:14 PM by Shalla Bennett

Hello Everyone,


It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!!! The trees are going up and the stockings are being hung. It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Christmas is a wonderful time of year were we celebrate with family and to give back to others. December 1st is the National Day of Giving.


National Day of Giving encourages giving back. It takes place the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. After we’ve spent the weekend shopping and looking for the best deals possible, this day reminds us to give to those less fortunate. Whether we look to our favorite causes or charities, it’s a great reminder to lift others up during a generous time of year. On the Tuesday after Thanksgiving charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.


There lots you can do to give back through this entire month. Take advantage of all the holiday deals to add to your charitable giving. Combined with your family, friends, local and national organizations and through the power of social media, Day of Giving can become a tradition worth passing on.


Here are several ways to give not only on national day of giving, but through out the month.. 

  • Set up a collection for non-perishable food at work. Deliver the collection to a local food pantry.
  • Donate gift cards to a shelter.
  • Collect new toys and donate them to children spending the holidays in the hospital. 
  • Make blankets for those receiving cancer treatment.
  • Have your kids make cards that can be delivered to the hospital or old folks home for the holidays. 
  • Pick a family to shop for for the holidays. 
  • Make a meal for someone.

There are lots of amazing and special things you can do this holiday season to give back. The best thing you can give is something thats totally free. It’s kindness!! Sometime is all of the craziness we tend to be a little on edge. With everything still effecting us and having a hard time with the event thats happening in our world, Kindness could be the one that that we could practice and spread to everyone we see. 

Have a conversation with the person at the check out line. Maybe give a bottle of water or hot coco to the person standing ringing the bell for charity. You never know what your kindness could do for someone. Well I hope you all have a wonderful day of giving.
