Today is the day! #givingtuesday! But, if you are on the other side of the globe, you may have missed it. #givingtuesday is global giving day, and it can be time spent with, or doing something for someone–which is free—given any day.
My husband and I — well, mostly me, decided to donate in the names of our family and significant others, to organizations of their choice.
Here are the organizations that we have donated to today:
For myself, I donated to the one closest to my heart, I’m excited about what they are doing. In honor of the day, they asked us to post a photo online of an #unselfie. The organization is called Stand Up 2 Cancer.
There are various reasons our family members have chosen these foundations. Some warm our hearts, some are adult/childhood cancer break through research foundations. Some are foundations researching diseases which have personally touched our family.
By the way—I’m still here! I have been busy de-cluttering, then I got sidetracked by doing some genealogy research, then I was sidetracked with Thanksgiving, and back to genealogy research. Cyber Monday was yesterday, and I had to take a gander to see what I was missing. Apparently nothing we can’t live without. Now…it’s working with the Christmas decorations, after the fake tree has been properly fluffed.
There is also the hourly feedings of my old fart cat. He has to eat small meals or he vomits, the veterinarian diagnosed him with hyperthyroidism 8 years ago, he now has kidney disease. Oh, and he has trouble with constipation (aren’t you glad I told you that?). Anyway, he receives medicine in his food, so I have to monitor him so that the other vulture-cats don’t nose him out.
Okay…now it’s time for binge-blog-reading.
