We’re all sick of the overproduced “selfie” posts crowding our Facebook and Instagram feeds, most of which perpetuate an often distasteful, self-absorbed persona. Giving Tuesday is asking us to combat this very phenomenon and dive into the spirit of selfless giving propagated by the Holidays. Directly following Black Friday and Cyber Monday, the second annual Giving Tuesday will take place December 3rd, 2013. It is a country-wide initiative aimed at mobilizing donations to non-profits and charitable organizations. This year, Beit T’Shuvah is joining the movement and we need support to get funds to the people that need it most.
Instead of shopping till you drop, this movement is asking all of us to step outside of ourselves, and our immediate surroundings. We can all gush about how thankful we are to have the beautiful things that comprise our life, but what makes us filled with gratitude is the very fact that we know there are people less fortunate. Giving Tuesday is dedicated to reminding us that it is our duty— and it just so happens to be the greatest gift we can give ourselves— to help those that are struggling. It is up to all of us to actively take a stand and leave our world better than we found it.
Join Giving Tuesday and support the gift of life with a donation to Beit T’Shuvah: an organization actively dedicated to changing lives and saving souls.
