How many of you have ever wanted to give back but didn't have the resources to do such? If you're human, I think we have all wanted to give back a time or another especially when we are blessed with what we have. The great thing about it giving is that, you don't have to be rich to give back!
First things first..
Why is it important to give back?
Why is it so important to find a cause you love and volunteer your time? Spending time enriching your community is a great way to broaden your perceptions of the world. Sometimes we could be surrounded by an environment and become standoff-ish or disconnected to those that do not live the way that we do and not understanding that this may be so because of the lack of resources.
By immersing yourself in a community and surrounding yourself with people who are dedicated to bettering the world, you can learn so much about how the world works as a whole. You gain a unique sense of purpose by serving those around you, one which often manifests in other areas of your life. As for me, when I give, I give from a pure place only because I know what it was like to live in a period of time without even the most basic resources. I do believe that providing those that are less fortunate with adequate resources, will give increased hope to the hopeless. Wouldn't you think so?
What would keep you from making a difference? What if I told you that you could make a difference? Would you?
I'm so glad that you're interested in making a difference....
Now is the time to start thinking about what you and your family can do on Giving Tuesday to make your community even better. Worried about the resources? No more!
Firstly, what is Giving Tuesday you may ask?
Giving Tuesday as a response to Black Friday, the day after American Thanksgiving when people rush to the stores to snap up bargains. Meant to be the antithesis of Black Friday, Giving Tuesday is now a global movement that encourages people all over the world to give back by doing random acts of kindness by donating to their favorite charities, or doing volunteer work that helps bring about real change in their communities.
