May 5th is the global GIVING TUESDAY day. We know it is an incredibly tough time for everyone in the world right now, but today is a good day to remember how lucky we are to be relatively safe, fed, sheltered and with access to modern technology and resources, compared to others. If you can, it is a great day to give back. Kindness is the easiest way to feel human, all over again. Use the hashtag #GivingTuesdayNow to make that kindness go viral
Here are some resources:
- Check out GiveLocalTogether.org, organized by the Catalog for Philantropy, looking to raise $250,000+ for 164 local organizations. This is the BEST way to do something locally. These organizations need your help to support our local non-profits so they not only survive, but thrive, and to ensure that they’ll be here to help us recover and rebuild We are thrilled to be media partners for this effort, and hosted a Recipe Time with FreshFarm (one of the non-profits involved), yesterday on BYT instagram to raise awareness of the campaign, which you can still enjoy today through 5pm.
- Want to dig a little deeper? Our Giving Back section of the site has previously published volunteer guides (if you can’t do things in person, you can do them virtually, or donate) and spotlights on a lot of amazing local non-profits if you need inspiration where to give.
- PLUS: donations for adayin.live are still open if you enjoyed Friday and want to support local businesses involved.
- ALSO, LITERALLY, JUST LOOK ANYWHERE AROUND YOU – you CAN make a difference.
