#Giving Tuesday

October 3, 2012

Operation Shower is joining with Giving Tuesday (www.givingtuesday.org) to help spread the word about coming together on November 27th for a day of giving.  There is a day of shopping – Black Friday – a day of cyber-shopping – Cyber Monday  - and now there is a day of giving – Giving Tuesday.

There is no right way to celebrate Giving Tuesday.  You can donate to a charity, volunteer your time, take a treat to a neighbor or simply write a Facebook post about why you support a charity to help spread  awareness.

Since this is a new concept, we don’t have the answers as to the best way to celebrate or even what exactly we will do.  But,  what we would like to do is to share with you ideas we have concerning fun ways to give back — we are partial to parties — and we would love to hear your ideas.

Leading up to November 27th, we would also like to share more with you about Operation Shower and our mission.  Stay tuned for a little history about Operation Shower, some of our favorite quotes from our moms, some of our favorite shower moments and some sneak peeks into our ideas for doing more in 2013.

We are working to keep our “chain of love” for military families going and Giving Tuesday is a great opportunity for us to do this. Please join us and let us know your ideas!

Update:

Giving Tuesday has now reached 200 partners.  Please see the press release HERE.
