Giving Tuesday

It’s that time of year again where we start to stress about all the gifts we need to buy people. We start to get consumed with Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and who has the best deals on the Apple Watch (I had to resist from buying one because even though I think they look funny, they are so convenient).

Enter Giving Tuesday. This is a day where we can acknowledge those less fortunate than us and spread some holiday cheer. It’s a great reminder of what the holidays are all about.

Here are some of my favorite causes you can donate to this year:

Pancreatic Cancer Action Network - Purple Stride

Instead of just donating money sign up to do a walk for Pancreatic Cancer. This is an interactive fundraising effort that helps fund further research. I personally have two peers whose father’s died from pancreatic cancer this year. Therefore, I hold this cause close to my heart.

St. Jude

This is always one of my favorites this time of year. By donating you can help fund the treatment of children with cancer. I personally have seen the positive effects that St. Judes can have on a family trying to support their child with cancer.

Humane Society

If animals are your thing then the Humane society is a great place to donate

Who doesn’t love animals?

These are just my top 3 favorite spots to donate this year. Feel free to comment and let me know of other causes that you value.

Happy Holidays!
