But isn't the holiday season meant to be more than that?
I'm not saying that gift-giving during the holidays is a bad thing. It's wonderful and I wish I could do more to give to those I love. But the holidays are also about giving back. Helping those in need. Lending a hand to people who have been neglected by the system. Supporting those who are struggling.
And that's what #GivingTuesday is all about. It's about giving back to organizations and non-profits in our communities. It's about giving hope to those who are suffering.
That's why I'm donating to Resolve.org on #GivingTuesday. As a member of the infertility community, Resolve has helped me by being an advocate for my rights, and by providing local support groups. They are a part of my community and my support system. And I hope that they can continue to do so for many years to come.
#GivingTuesday takes place on December 2nd. Let's show the world that the holidays mean more to us than a new sweater or pajama gift set. We have an opportunity to make a huge impact to the organizations that support those in need. We can give the gift of hope.
Which organization will you be donating to on #GivingTuesday?
