Get in on #GivingTuesday by Lindsey Slater

Thanksgiving is over. I'm still not hungry. The madness that is Black Friday has died down. And all the clicks that come with Cyber Monday have been silenced.

But don't worry -- it's not over yet! Today is #GivingTuesday!

What is Giving Tuesday? Here's what says: "We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals….Wouldn’t it be great to have a day for giving back?"

So, after giving thanks and spending money on gifts for Christmas, feel really good about yourself and give back to your community.

Obviously, I have a large slant toward supporting Lawrence Habitat for Humanity (GuideStar approved!) But no matter what local nonprofit you support, even a small donation goes a long way in Lawrence and Douglas County.

So get on social media and spread the word about #GivingTuesday! And don't forget to donate to your favorite nonprofit (or Lawrence Habitat).

If you need some help with what nonprofits are in town, here's a list from the Lawrence Chamber of Commerce.

Happy #GivingTuesday!

Giving back really benefits the giver as much as the recipient! Let's ALL join in and give today! Doesn't have to be monetary, giving of your time, your care, your expertise, and even just giving a smile (when was the last time you actually looked a teenager in the eyes with a smile?) can lift a person's spirit!
