Giving Tuesday

Do you ever wonder if you are the last to know something?  I felt a little out of touch this morning when I heard about "Giving Tuesday".  Here is a video that explains the idea/movement.

I then received an email from the American Diabetes Association.  They have received a pledge from Sun Live Financial to triple each gift.

"Give today and your gift can have TRIPLE the impact to Stop Diabetes®.

TODAY ONLY! In honor of Giving Tuesday, our national sponsor, Sun Life Financial, will triple your gift, dollar-for-dollar — up to a campaign total of $75,000. That's triple the funding to help families coping with diabetes, and triple the funding for the research that will unlock a cure."
If you would like to make a contribution today to help the American Diabetes Association, here is the link to the donation site.  

Of course my snarky side suggests that they should hold this day BEFORE all the shopping days but I guess that just having a worldwide day of giving is pretty important no matter when it is.

Thanks for reading!
