Last year, throughout the months of November and December, on each Tuesday we highlighted a Birmingham wedding vendor that gave back to their community. I loved this project. #GivingTuesday is a global movement, occurring the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. Anyone that knows me, knows it is very near and dear to my heart. Giving back is something we all should do - here is Main Street's pledge.
Why does it only have to be two months of the year that we are conditioned to think of and give to others? I'm fairly certain that I wrote this same thing last year. (Edit: I did. Read the post here; it was a good one.) Regardless I do like to take advantage of people's giving nature, even if it is only during the holidays. So for the entire month of November and December, I will highlight someone or something that is making a difference in this life we are sharing. You can follow us along on Facebook for a post each day (not just on Tuesdays) to inspire you. Maybe you will be so inspired to give yourself. Don't worry, we will still post wedding videos, but I want to flood it with people making a difference. You can also check back on the blog to find vendors being highlighted for their giving back activities. Are you as excited as I am????
