What do you buy for that person on your list who has everything? Why not the gift of hope for someone who has nothing at all. Charitable gifts are available through many organizations such as World Vision and Unicef. Today is “Giving Tuesday” and what better day than today to start to think about those less fortunate than yourself. After the spending sprees of “Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday” this event comes as a welcome change. Now in its second year, “Giving Tuesday” is a day for all to step back, forget about the current stresses of holiday prep and shopping lists and think about those across the globe who are sick, hungry, cold and living without the basic necessities we sometimes take for granted. Many non-profit organizations and registered charities across the world are asking you to take part today on “Giving Tuesday” by giving of yourself resources, money, or time to help someone in need.
