After Black Friday and Cyber Monday, both of which passed many of us by, today is Giving Tuesday, which is far more exciting.

Many of us regularly donate to charities of all types, to give something back, but Giving Tuesday isn’t just about money: you can also volunteer your time, campaign for something you believe in, organise a fundraising event, share your skills, arrange a donation drive at your school, workplace, or among your friends … the list really is endless.

Giving not only helps others but it makes us feel good, too.

Share your pride in giving. Is anyone doing anything above the ordinary or are their all year round givers who deserve a mention/accolade. Let us know about them in your comments. Happy to share on Bude & Beyond, one of my own ways of giving back.
