Ways To Give Back During Holiday Season
Ways to Give Back for the Holidays
By Eliza Fogel
As the holiday season approaches, it is a great time to reflect on our year by giving back to others. There is no better way to fully embrace the holiday spirit than by helping out in your community, wherever it may be. One of the easiest ways to give back is by donating on Giving Tuesday. After enjoying the Thanksgiving holiday and spending on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday is the perfect day to donate to your favorite charities and nonprofits. All it takes is the click of your mouse and a donation to help out.
