Got Black Friday And Cyber Monday Fatigue? Giving Tuesday Is Here To Recharge Your Spirit

By Rethink Breast Cancer November 27 2018

Is it just us, or has Black Friday and Cyber Monday sneakily become a month-long affair? It feels like the push for consumerism has reached fever pitch (as much as we like a hot deal our inboxes and wallets are over it!)

If you’re in need of a consumerism detox, look no further as today is Giving Tuesday.  Giving Tuesday is the global movement for giving and volunteering and is the antidote to the past week’s spending frenzy. It’s the perfect time to reflect on what the holiday season means to you and to give back to those who need it most.

A DAY TO REMEMBER THAT SOMETIMES THE SIMPLEST ACTS OF GENEROSITY MEAN A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE TO THOSE STRUGGLING THROUGH THE HOLIDAYS.

Cancer doesn’t take a break for festivities. While many of us are getting caught up in in the celebratory bustle, some women’s lives will come to a grinding halt as they hear the most dreaded news. Some women will be skipping feasts with friends to sit in the chemo ward. Imagine how much an act of kindness means when you’re in that situation.

THIS HOLIDAY SEASON, FOR EVERY DONATION OF $25 OR MORE WE’LL GIVE-A-CARE PACKAGE TO A NEWLY DIAGNOSED WOMAN ON YOUR BEHALF TO HELP MAKE THEIR DAYS AHEAD A LITTLE EASIER.

You’ll receive a tax receipt for your donation, plus an eCard you can send to a friend that shows you #GiveACare.

So, this #GivingTuesday make some room in your budget to show you Give-a-Care by paying it forward to a young person living with cancer.  It’s the part of your credit card bill you’ll be the most proud of come the new year.
