#GiveHope for #GivingTuesday

It's the time of year when everyone is shopping like crazy. Purchasing decorations, gifts, food, wrapping paper, and more gifts. So much time and money is spent on giving to others, but primarily to people we know. Our family, loved ones, friends, and coworkers. We give them gifts and cookies and cards. We spoil those around us as a way of showing how much we care.

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 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?
