Have you ever heard of Giving Tuesday? Well, this year is really the first time that we heard of it. Giving Tuesday is observed on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving. It follows Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Giving Tuesday, which fell on December 1st, is a global day of giving. According to our Girl Scouts of Hawaii blog, “it’s an event that celebrates the power of generosity to make real, lasting, and local change.”
In light of this special day, in the spirit of giving, and after reading an article in the Garden Island Newspaper about giving opportunities for the holidays, we decided to donate $100 to The Garden Island/Zonta Christmas Fund. It is our hope that our donation will help to bring forth more smiles and happiness to those who are encountering challenges during this holiday season.
The check is in the mail….
