“Tis the season to be jolly, Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la, la, la!”
The holiday season is here. This week we will gather with family to enjoy a delicious meal while we pause to reflect on life’s blessings and all of things for which we are thankful. It is a day that we look forward to each year. Thanksgiving also kicks off the Christmas season. The decorations go up (well, ours are already up), the music begins, and the shopping starts. It is a season of joy, putting others first, and giving. That is what we love most.
Beginning on December 1st we will begin our third 25 Days of Giving. We will embark on an incredible journey to brighten the lives of others during the Christmas season. The goal is simple. We want to make this season of giving special for those around us. There are families in our community who are hurting, need a hand, and/or just need someone to show that they care. There are people who dread Christmas because the stresses involved with the holiday are too much to handle. Others just need to experience kindness. They just need to feel the love of a kind gesture. Our first two 25 Days of Giving have been absolutely amazing. We have seen a lot of smiles over the past two years. And, as with all giving experiences, our lives have been greatly impacted.
We have identified 25 simple giving-acts, one per day, that can brighten the life of another. We have scheduled each day in an effort to make it very easy for you to join us on this awesome adventure. Our hope is that you will participate each day, but we understand that it may not be feasible for everyone. If that is the case consider selecting the days that fit best for you. We only ask that you do something. Take action this holiday season and make a difference in your community.
We will share each day’s experience through Social Media and we ask that you do the same. Share your pictures and videos on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram using #25DaysGiving and tag Impact 52. You can also email us your stories at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are excited for December 1st. We are excited to make this a special season of giving.
Will you join us in our annual 25 Days of Giving?
