Hi. It’s Tuesday. But, not just any Tuesday. It’s Giving Tuesday. You’ve probably seen the hashtag all over social media. #GivingTuesday.
Giving Tuesday is a day that begins the season of giving. It highlights the purpose of giving to other people and supporting charities and causes. There are so many causes you can donate to and volunteer at, it is hard to choose.
Sometimes I feel that it’s hard to find a way to really give to the community or the world, without being scammed or knowing where that money is going. That is why I want to share with you THE SHOP FORWARD.
The Shop Forward is a website that sells clothing and other accessories to support causes. Here is a list of causes they support:
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
American Red Cross
Building Homes for Heroes
City of Hope
Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation
White Heart Foundation
Capital Area Food Bank
Andy Roddick Foundation
Musicians on Call
Brandon Burlsworth Foundation
Wreaths Across America
Equality Florida Pulse Victims Fund
Special Operations Warrior Foundation
Austin Pets Alive
Agape Children’s Ministry
They also have items where the proceeds go to funds for the victims of Las Vegas and Texas.
A while ago I ordered this crewneck that goes to fund the victims of the Las Vegas shooting. A tragedy that affected people and a community close to my heart.
What a way to donate to causes that mean so much to you, all while wearing cute and comfy clothing at the same time.
When you order the apparel, the donation is already added on to your order, but you also get the option to donate more at the checkout.
I understand that sometimes it can be hard to find a way to help people and organizations around the world when you, as a person, seem so small. But, little donations like this really do help.
So, on this crazy, busy #GivingTuesday…please think about spending 10 minutes of your time checking out and maybe purchasing something from this awesome website. I promise you won’t regret it. Plus, you’ll have a cute, comfy sweatshirt to curl up in if you donate.
GIVE. GIVE. GIVE.
Happy Tuesday y’all.
