#Feminist #GivingTuesday

December 2, 2014

Yeehaw, it’s #GivingTuesday!

Tuesday, December 2nd 2014 is a global day dedicated to giving back to our communities.  All day, non-profits, families, businesses, individuals, community centers, feminists, activists, and students around the world will come together for a common purpose: to celebrate generosity, and to give.

It’s a simple idea:  think of who/what your community is, who/what is in your neighborhood, who/what you define as your network, who/what you’d like to support.  And then make a financial gift to that who/what, if you’re able.  Additionally, perhaps you could spread the word by writing about it on social media or picking up the phone.

In no small thanks to suggestions from our twitter followers, here is a short list of local places right here in our communities to consider when choosing where to lend your financial gift on Giving Tuesday:

Happy giving!  Regardless of what else you do on #GivingTuesday, please at least do this: turn to the person next to you and ask them if they’d like a hug. If they say yes and consent, then give away a hug!

Have a great #GivingTuesday, Portland. You are valued, appreciated, and worth it!

Love,

the volunteers at In Other Words Feminist Community Center
