The holiday season is commonly referred to as the giving season, but let’s be honest -- few people give gifts without expecting something in return. In response to Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and every other annual gift-getting occasion, 92Y and The United Nations Foundation have partnered to bring us #GivingTuesday -- a holiday based solely around giving.
It’s simple: on November 27th, join your family, friends, neighbors, or coworkers in an act of pure generosity. The act could be as easy as complimenting a loved one or as involved as giving your time or money to an organization in need. Don’t do it for the thanks. Don’t do it for the payback. Don’t do it to re-up your karma from the time you re-gifted a Bath & Body Works lotion set. Do it just to be kind.
If you’re having trouble thinking of kind things to do, head over to #GivingTuesday’s list of official partners by taking action below. You can search the list by organization type and location to find the perfect way to give for you. C’mon! You have 364 other days in the year to do stuff for yourself!
