Last year at around this time, I wrote about “Giving Tuesday.” It’s a movement to give back on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. That is a mere 25 days from now, December 3. I will do my best to help you generate ideas in order to participate. I will start by giving you information. The website is www.givingtuesday.org. Once you decide what you are doing, you’re encouraged to tell people about it. Some may consider this bragging…and some people might use it to brag. But, it is more about spreading the seed of good deeds out there. The intent is to get the word out. Together we can make the world a better place. I understand the hesitance though, but take this story for an example.
Jennifer writes an article for her church’s newsletter about care packages for the military. Terry sees Jennifer after church and mentions a group that sends pizza’s to the troops overseas. The choir director stops Jennifer the next week and excitedly talks about sending batteries and headphones to the troops because batteries are always needed and the head phones/ear buds get dry and cracked in the heat over there. Two extra ideas generated from one article. What ideas can be generated by the conversation that you start?
