Giving Tuesday

Now that many of us have given our money to businesses during Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday, why not continue the giving today for Giving Tuesday!

Support nonprofit organizations of your choice, whether they help people with disabilities, the homeless, children that are hungry or animals in need.

The Giving Tuesday website explains why we give. The three main reasons are gratitude, altruism and compassion. It is human nature to help others. Through supporting the well-being of others, we, in turn, are supporting our own well-being.

When I think of giving, it reminds me of the Boy Scouts of America slogan: “Do a good turn daily”. That phrase simply means that you should do something good for someone else when they have done something good for you.

Throughout this Thanksgiving season, be grateful for what you have, and who you have in your life. Share some of that love with others around you.

About Tuesday Talk With Alex

Born in Charleston, SC, I was injured in a motor vehicle accident when I was nine months old. I acquired a C5-C6 spinal cord injury. I'm now 30 years old and I do not let my disability deter me from acheiving my goals and enjoying life. I will be sharing my experience of living with a spinal cord injury.
