Everyone knows about Black Friday and Cyber Monday, right.
Have you heard of #GivingTuesday? Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving.
This year, #GivingTuesday falls on November 28. #GivingTuesday harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partners to transform how people think about, talk about, and participate in the giving season. It inspires people to take collective action to improve their communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they believe in, and help create a better world. #GivingTuesday demonstrates how every act of generosity counts, and that they mean even more when we give together.
Ways to participate in this global movement?
Make a Donation
The easiest way to participate in #GivingTuesday is to donate money to your favorite organization. It doesn’t have to be a large donation; those small increments of even $5 or $10 add up quickly to make a difference. You can also donate to the Gary Greene Realtor Foundation through any of our agents.
Volunteer Your Time
Volunteer for a charity or organize a larger team volunteer event with your friends, staff or neighbors to help a charity during the holidays. Another idea is to donate pro bono hours to help charities in need of your skills. You can also organize a donation drive for people to donate goods, clothing and other items to those in need.
Clean out Your Household Closet
This is the perfect time to take stock of your closet and clean it out to make room for holiday goodies. Gently-used items you can donate to a homeless shelter, or another organization.
