Giving Tuesday

Well, the holiday season is officially upon us, with it’s usual bevy of shopping, parties, family, friends, and stress, It’s so easy to get caught up in it all and forget that the real purpose of this time of year is to appreciate the joy and blessings in our life and to share some of that joy with others.

Today is Giving Tuesday, a national day of giving established last year. The idea is that after spending Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday shopping, we as a nation make a focused effort to give back. It’s an official day of giving to kick off what will hopefully be a whole holiday season of giving.

Today is what Give Realty is all about. A desire to give back to our community is what drove Laurie to found the brokerage back in 2008, and this desire remains the driving force of Give Realty today. Laurie gives not just for herself, but in the hopes that her business model will help to encourage others to give back as well.

With thousands of nonprofits in our local community, and hundreds of thousands nationwide, the opportunities for you to give back today are endless. Find a nonprofit that supports a cause you are passionate about and help them out. Don’t have the funds to make a donation? Giving of your time counts, too.

This is your chance. Be inspired. Let today be the beginning of a season of giving that will become a tradition, and might just change your life.
