It’s officially Giving Tuesday! What does that mean? Today marks a global generosity movement to transform communities. There are tons of ways to help local nonprofits right here in metro Atlanta.

First, consider what you’re passionate about – maybe it’s the environment, maybe it’s feeding those in need or maybe it’s taking care of animals.

Next, decide what to do… can you make a donation? Maybe it’s a gift in someone’s honor? Or even seek a time to be a hands-on volunteer. Giving back will not only help your community be great, but it makes YOU feel great too.

Lastly, take action – Give! (And if you choose to post about it, use the hashtag #GivingTuesday to encourage your friends to join the movement.)
