December Third marks a special day that celebrates the best part of the Christmas season — giving!
Today we celebrate Giving Tuesday, a day that is observed nationwide and serves as a reminder to give back to the charities and organizations that we love. Since its foundation in 2012, the event has grown in size, aiming to impact hundreds of millions of people around the world through simple acts of generosity.
There are many ways you can give back today. Of course, you can donate to charities, and non-profit organizations, but you can also dedicate your time to volunteering with them!
A good way to get ideas on how to give back today is by scrolling through the Twitter hashtag “givingtuesday.” Not only will you see an act of kindness after act of kindness, but you can get creative ideas on how to get involved!
We compiled some of our favorite Christian organizations that you can donate to in honor of Giving Tuesday:
- Compassion International
- World Vision
- Samaritan’s Purse
- Preemptive Love
- World Relief
- Salvation Army
- Operation Christmas Child
- Open Doors USA
The list goes on and on, as there are many great charities that you can donate to or volunteer with, all over the country!
