We’ve had Black Friday and Cyber Monday, so now it’s time for Giving Tuesday. This is actually a thing! And it’s a thing I can support wholeheartedly.
We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. This year help us create #GivingTuesday. A new day for giving back. On Tuesday December 3, 2013, global charities, families, businesses, community centers, students and more will come together to create #GivingTuesday.
It’s a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give something more. Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving. Be a part of a national celebration of our great tradition of generosity.
You all know that I am donating all my royalties from December sales of TIARA TROUBLE to The Senior Source. If you haven’t already picked up your copy, make it part of your Giving Tuesday. You’ll spend $2.99 for the eBook, and The Senior Source will get $2.09 of that. If you buy a print book, send me a picture of the receipt and I will match my eBook royalty to that sale.
In 2012, The Outside Lane donated 70 pairs of slipper socks to The Senior Source, hoping to help keep some older toes warm and toasty. This year, I’d love to do even more by donating a nice lump sum.
Please share with you friends. Even if you never read the book (which you should because you will learn great tips for keeping your butt from jiggling in a swimsuit) you will have helped a worthy cause.
