Giving Tuesday

"On Tuesday November 27, 2012 charities, families, businesses and individuals are coming together to transform the way people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season.

It’s a simple idea. Find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to join in acts of giving. Tell everyone you can about what you are doing and why it matters. Join a national celebration of our great tradition of generosity.

And together we’ll create ways to give more, give better and give smarter." ~ Giving Tuesday

We have our favorite organizations, obviously; but wherever you decide to give, please make sure it's a reputable charity. Check with Charity Navigator to feel better about your gift.

A special request: we're involved with Women's Centers International, a new endeavor. Please see the website for information. There will be a post next week but an extra shout-out for today is warranted.
