I absolutely love the idea behind Giving Tuesday. It promotes a message of giving back to the World and our communities on a National scale. The Giving Tuesday website states this:


We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.

It’s a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give something more. Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving. Join us and be a part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity.

     The Winston Churchill quote, "We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give." is such an inspiration. It rings true in my life in so many ways. I have found that I am happiest when I am helping others. It is the reason behind my green living blog, and website.

     I have listed 10 Charities that I love, because they help our environment, are transparent in their research and funding, and spend at least 80% of their donated money to their cause itself. I believe that they are all doing great things to make our Planet better, and inspire me to continue in my green mission. 

     No matter who you decide to give to, giving back benefits us all, and I encourage you to find an organization that aligns with your ideals. Visit my section on GIVING BACK, to find out more information about these organizations in the future.

Thanks for reading, and happy Giving Tuesday!
