You've heard of Black Friday, Cyber Monday...and today is Giving Tuesday. It's a global effort to give back, and we have just the way you can start...

 

According to Giving Tuesday:

#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.

Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.

One of the best ways to get involved is in your own community.

 

Want to give back? You can start right here with an early donation to Cans for a Cure! It's an easy way to help out a fellow Mainer battling breast cancer. I know too many people fighting the good fight right now.

I love all aspects of the holidays, but giving is my favorite - I've started with a 30 dollar donation to Cans on Giving Tuesday and I hope you can give too. If not to Cans...then give to what brings you joy...
