As an avowed lover of tech and someone who has a long holiday gift list to get through, yesterday was something else. Cyber Monday offers so many opportunities to spend way too much money, but it’s really become part of the post-Thanksgiving ritual, hasn’t it?
You know one other thing that’s become part of that same post-Thanksgiving ritual? Giving Tuesday.
And today is the big day. Many Americans gave their credit cards a workout yesterday, but today is the day when they pay it forward with charitable donations to their favorite organizations.
After so much conspicuous consumption yesterday, I really like how Giving Tuesday forces me to slow down and concentrate on the groups that really matter to me. Take some time today and I bet you will feel the same way.
Stand’s outreach to communities across Illinois is important to our mission. Without the generous support of our donors, we wouldn’t be able to reach parents and community members up and down our state.
Empowering parents to advocate for their child is what it’s all about. When you give a gift to Stand for Children today, you’re giving a gift to make that work possible.
Thank you for standing with us this past year, and thank you for standing with us in the year ahead.
