You've probably heard of GivingTuesday, but did you know it's not just about donating to charities on one day? GivingTuesday is a movement of generosity to create awareness about charities and encourage everyone to do nice things for one another.

Tuesday, May 5, 2020, has been designated #GivingTuesdayNow, a day of giving and unity as an emergency response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Giving back doesn't have to involve money, although local nonprofits would greatly appreciate it if you can donate. Here are some ways that you can get involved with #GivingTuesdayNow:

  • Send someone a card
  • Call a friend
  • Volunteer virtually
  • Bake a cake for someone
  • Donate to a nonprofit
  • Post about a nonprofit on social media
  • Compliment a stranger
  • Thank a grocery store clerk
  • Give a generous tip
  • Facetime an older relative
  • Paint kindness rocks
  • Support a local business

Our friend Victoria Flaherty, Assistant Director of Development at the Evansville Rescue Mission, joined us on the MY Morning Show to tell us more about #GivingTuesdayNow and how you can help.

You get the idea. Now, go forth and be nice.
