Yay!!! It's one of my favorite days of the holiday season... Giving Tuesday! I am not 100% behind having to make a special day to be a giving soul... but, hey, whatever it takes.

I love spending today reminding anyone within the sound of my voice how easy it is to give and how many ways there are to give. I feel like people get so caught up in the concept that being philanthropic requires money. But there are unlimited ways to be charitable that cost nothing at all! You can lead so much change with your time and resources, especially if large amounts of people could band together for the greater good.

Need ideas??? Well, you are in luck!

Start with simple acts of kindness for your kids (or yourself):

Make sure you are an organ donor, what an easy way to potentially save up to 8 lives. (It takes less than 5 minutes to sign up online here in NH.)

If you choose to give monetary donation, please check Charity Navigator to ensure your money is going to a worthy cause.

If you are a big online shopper (like moi), please use Amazon Smile to make your amazon purchases. You shop exactly the same way, but a small portion of your sale goes to the charity of your choice (mine is my daughters' PTA.)

Give your time and encouragement. You can offer to babysit for a new parent. Call a business when you receive great service to praise an employee. Pick up trash in your community. Really, the ideas are endless, but just make a point to do something.

I would love to hear other ideas. Feel free to share, and go out today and give. Something. Anything.
