Giving Tuesday: The Day to Give Back

giving tuesday

Today is Giving Tuesday!

For those you unfamiliar with Giving Tuesday, it’s a national and global movement in response to Black Friday and Cyber Monday. On those days we are usually buying things for ourselves or our friends and families. Giving Tuesday is a way to give back to others.

So today find a cause or charity you support and give back. Giving Tuesday isn’t just limited to monetary donations. You can also volunteer or give back in whatever way you see fit.

Today I’ll be making a donation to Carolina For the Kids (formerly UNC Dance Marathon). It’s an organization I’ve supported for four years financially and through organizational service as a four-year dancer and committee member. This year I’m the media relations sub-chair, making sure the public is aware of the work we’re doing to support the patients and families of N.C. Children’s Hospital

Two weekends ago we announced our plans to build a new clinic for N.C. Children’s Hospital which will help the hospital provide easier access to outpatient treatment and give it room to expand specialty clinics. This venture is in addition to our ongoing grants, including Parent’s Night Out which provides meals to parents and the For the Kids fund for emergency expenses. If you’d like to support Carolina For the Kids, you can donate online. Here’s the link to my personal fundraising page for the 2015 Marathon presented by CFTK:
