“No One Has Ever Become Poor By Giving.” - Anne Frank
This time of year is always my favorite. Not just because we get to spend time with family and friends during the holiday season and eat lots of tasty treats 😋, but because it gives us a time to pause and be grateful for everything in our lives. It is also a time to reflect on what we can all do to transform our individual communities through our actions of giving to make them better.
Giving Tuesday has special meaning. It is a day that was created in 2012 with one simple idea in mind: A day to encourage people all over the world to do good. Over the past eight years, it has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate and celebrate generosity. 🎉
It is also a time to reflect on what we have done this past year to show generosity to our communities. It's been a busy year for me and my whole posse! Some highlights of the ways we here at Oliver Thomas have donated this past year:
Over the course of the year, I have personally been involved in each donation and it warms my heart every time I am able to provide a smile . It is amazing how we receive unexpected gains in our lives through generosity & spreading PAWsitivity! ❤️ 🐾
Here’s to Giving Tuesday! My favorite holiday of the year! A generous heart is something we should all strive for.
