GRATITUDE FOR GOOD

Black Friday. Cyber Monday. Must Have's for 2014. Buy One Get One Free. With so many deals on computers, clothes, video games, and even vacuum cleaners, it feels like the holidays are all about "having."
Enter: Giving Tuesday: one day during the three weeks of our annual buying frenzy to pause just for a moment and remember what the holidays are all about: love, kindness, community, and giving.
This year, join the giving revolution and do something kind for someone else less fortunate. Serve a hot meal to the homeless. Donate that pile of unused clothes to a women's shelter. Or give a month of secondary education to a child orphaned by AIDS. Whatever you do, do it with joy and don't forget to feel good in the process!
