What are we talking about today?

Some days have themes. I don't necessarily post something in each of these topic areas every week.

Sunday: Church-related or spiritual things.
Monday: Running.
Tuesday: Books.
Wednesday: Transportation.
Friday: Green living.

#GivingTuesday


Yep, that's today. The charity answer to Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday.

Giving Tuesday does two things:
1. Interrupts the frenzy of buying to remind people to give back to their communities; and
2. Kicks off what many (most, I hope!) believe to be the true spirit of the holiday season-- giving instead of receiving.

Where do I give? Three places:
American Diabetes Association
American Cancer Society
BikeTexas

Please do share where you give in the comments (even if you aren't giving today!). Even better, use the hashtag #GivingTuesday all over the internet to encourage others to donate during the holidays.

Where do we give? Well....a lot of cash siphons off to our daughter and her kids, after that...the humane society, food bank, women in crisis.

All good choices.

We are pensioners, but we do give monthly to various charities. One of my poems is about giving, must post it for you, Su.
