It’s often been said that it’s better to give than to receive. And that makes today one AWESOME day…
Fresh on the heels of Black Friday and Cyber Monday comes ‘Giving Tuesday’ – a day in which you’re encouraged to donate to your favorite cause under the hashtags #GivingTuesdayCa and #GivingTuesday. Originating in 2012, the day was started by the United Nations Foundation as a response to commercialization and consumerism in the post-Thanksgiving season. And the response has been overwhelming.
Here in Vernon, a special event takes place at Vernon City Hall, presented by Tim Horton’s and Starbucks – you can read all about on the KISS FM News Page, in which the local United Way provides some thoughtful ways to be generous.
Giving doesn’t have to be elaborate either. Have some spare change? Deposit it in a Salvation Army Kettle. Doing some holiday shopping? Why not pick up a toy for our annual Santa Toy Club and bring it by one of our convenient drop-off locations, including here at KISS FM?
Finally, be generous with your TIME today….even if it’s helping out someone for only a few minutes. See? There are a LOT of ways to give. And they all feel great! ~ Jason & Jen
