Giving Tuesday

Here is your latest dose of Giving Tuesday.

Some Tuesdays, I will write a special post with the three-five coolest examples of giving back I’ve found (or done) that week. It might include stories, fundraisers, ways to get involved, ways to volunteer or more.

Free sifters – u/goodlyearth on Reddit posted “We saw these at Home Depot in Chico today. Free sifters for when people get to go back to their burned homes.”

Firefighter donations – The Gourmet Pizza Shoppe in Redlands, CA collected donations to take to the firefighters. They were collecting: gallon zip-loc bags, eye drops, face wipes, energy drinks, water, snacks, sunscreen, Gold Bond powder, and lip balm.⁣⁣

#HatsforWyatt – From Ravelry – A friend of an internet friend recently lost one of her twin boys (age 21) to complications of Juvenile Huntington’s Disease. She is absolutely heart broken and faces many challenges ahead with her other son who also suffers from the disease. Her son loved to crochet. To raise money for research the group hopes to find a couple people who would like to donate crocheted or knitted hats to have a small charity sale event on Facebook. A private Facebook group #HatsforWyatt has been set up for more information.

Please give me feedback. How do you see people giving back? Which item above is your favorite? What do you want to see more or less of? Something else? Just comment below to let me know.

It takes us all to make the world go round, have a great week!
