What Comes After Black Friday and Cyber Monday?

I didn’t know either, so click here to read about the first ever Giving Tuesday. I’m proud to live in the city that came up with this idea!

I love this idea – a day for charities to get as much attention as cheap electronics and free shipping (both things that I also enjoy). So to commemorate the occasion and kick off our own season of giving at home, we’ve made our first holiday donation to Best Day Foundation.

Best Day Foundation enables children with special needs to build confidence and self-esteem through safe, fun adventure activities including Surfing, Body Boarding, Kayaking, SUP (stand up paddling), Outrigger Canoeing, and Snow sports.

They achieve this by empowering communities across the country to offer special days at the beach and snow to children with special needs. Best Day provides back-end services, support, training, and business resources to ensure that safe, self-sufficient programs are created. The program is funded through donations, grants and sponsorships. 

What charities are you giving to this year? Give them a shout out in the comments section.

Happy Giving!
