Tips on Giving

A little less than a month away til World Give Day 2012! Hope you are all as excited as we are.

Here are some tips to start preparing for the most generous holiday of all 🙂

  • Choose a cause that you are interested in supporting. There are tons of great causes out there, and there is sure to be one that hits close to your heart.
  • Find out what you can do to support your cause: give a small donation, volunteer at an event, write a nice email. Whatever it may be, you are there to give back, and feel good about doing it!
  • Think of the ways you give back already, and how to improve on what you’re currently doing. Sometimes it’s as easy as smiling at a stranger to touch another life.
  • Ask your friends and family for support! It’s always more fun to give back when you have a someone along for the ride.
