The giving spirit was spreading like wildfire yesterday and we had so many people join our blog series with truly inspiring posts. One such post was written by our friend over at Do Good, Live Well. Take a look…
Happy World Give Day
Today is… World Give Day
On Monday, I enjoyed a speech by the guy who started World Give Day. His name is Ethan Austin and he’s also the founder of GiveForward.com, a website that offers free fundraising pages for friends and family members of loved ones who are facing medical crises. What a great idea. Ethan mentioned how bizarre it is that as a society, we are quick to send a check or a gift when it’s someone’s birthday, or anniversary, or graduation. But what do we do when a crisis hits? No one really knows exactly how to help. Our intentions are always noble, but there’s no good system for sending support when it REALLY matters, right!?
Well, GiveForward fixes that. Ethan wants anyone who is facing a serious illness to be able to benefit from the generosity of friends, family members, coworkers, even strangers. So he created a hub for managing donations that can make a huge difference for someone facing a medical challenge.
So today, in honor of Ethan and World Give Day, I am giving $25 to Kamron Mains, a young boy on GiveForward fighting brain cancer in Florida. Today is for Kamron!
