  • Honoring the Day of Giving with Thanks

    Suzanne Romero Dewey
    GivingTuesday is a global movement that began in 2012. The idea is simple. Let’s designate one day as a day to “give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.”  December 3, 2019, is a day organizations and individuals can choose to participate with their time, their resources, or their voice lending a hand to their local community or their favorite non-profit.
  • Hearts Full of Gratitude
