There are 61 days during the November/December holiday shopping period. That’s 61 days full of coupon overload, longer store hours, and discount madness. All in order to make sure that Mom has time to pick out the sweater for Uncle Mark, toy sailboat for Little Jim and the Frozen doll for Sara. When you’ve got 10 family members to buy gifts for lower prices can be a godsend, but the extensive time spent shopping can still leave you delirious, discombobulated and dying for the holiday season to be over.
Luckily, there’s a way to escape the insanity. Today is #GivingTuesday! Instead of worrying about how to make your Christmas special, you’re free to focus on helping someone else, in a big or small way. The mission of #GivingTuesday is for charities, families, businesses, community centers and students around the world to come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. You can volunteer your time or donate money. You can do something as small as paying-it-forward in the coffee line. It still creates positivity and smiles.
Collective Bias decided to spend the holidays giving back to our community. We’ve crafted a 12 Days of Giving campaign. For 12 days in December we’ll be donating various items to local organizations. We hope this idea will inspire you to jump right in and help someone, too!
So grab an item from the list below and donate to a local organization or family that could use a little holiday cheer this season. Use the hashtag #cbgives and let us know!
