It's here, Black Friday. Actually, did it start yesterday with the stores that were open on Thanksgiving? Any way, I am here today to remind you that after Black Friday and Cyber Monday there is a movement....#GivingTuesday. This year, on November 27th, people are urged to think about how they can give back at this holiday time.
For our family this is a natural fit. Long ago we abandoned the long holiday lists. Our small children receive a few simple gifts, and then we write checks to causes that meant a great deal to us in the year ahead. This year we may add another, such as going to a blood drive or purchasing a meal for a family in need. What might you be able to do? Do you want to give back? Let me know what you think? I love the topic of middle class philanthropy and want to know what you are thinking. Please share and let the discussion begin.
Thanks for reading, and I'll be back next week with more thoughts on illness, death and taxes for the middle class.
