Since 2012, Tuesday, December 12 has been designated as Giving Tuesday. It is a global day dedicated to giving back and celebrating generosity. Following Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #givingTuesday is a great time to take a moment and donate to a worthy cause that’s close to your heart. Even $5 means a lot to many organizations.
Scroll down to the bottom of the Berserk! homepage you’ll find a few of my favorite organizations under the gallery in the Give Back section to the left. Just $20 to Heifer International will provide a flock of ducks, geese, or chicks to a family from an impoverished nation that will help change and sustain their lives for the better. I’m also a big fan of Lil Bub’s Big Fund that provides grants to animals that need special care.
If you’re short of funds or don’t want to donate electronically, consider taking a few minutes to clean out your closet and make a clothing donation to a local shelter. You could also donate canned goods or other non-perishables to a food bank.
Charity Navigator can also help you find charitable organizations in the categories that are most important to you.
