Consider Giving to Non-Profits on #GivingTuesday

Tuesday, November 27th, 2012

Giving TuesdayEncourage your child’s giving spirit for #GivingTuesday, “a campaign to create a national day of giving at the start of the annual holiday season.”  The first-time campaign launches today (as an antidote to Black Friday and Cyber Monday) and hopes to spread a “great tradition of generosity.”

Visit GivingTuesday.org to learn more about the campaign and read about various non-profit organizations.  You can also consider the child- and family-focused foundations below that various editors have mentioned before on Goodyblog.

WhyHunger - gives access to healthy, affordable food to impoverished communities in the world

Soles4Souls – collects new and gently-used shoes to people in over 125 countries

88bikes – provides new bicycles to children, in particular girls rescued from human trafficking, in Africa and Asia
