It’s #GivingTuesday !

One of the better inventions to come out of this hyper-commercialized time of year is Giving Tuesday.  Right after the dreaded Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday comes a day that reminds us what this season is all about:  giving to others and celebrating love.

A group of four children hold a sign promoting giving Tuesday at CCVI

Peanut’s classmates would love your support.

There are many wonderful organizations that can use your support today.  To make a difference for Peanut and his friends, consider donating to CCVI.  They’ve set up a special page to track Giving Tuesday donations at https://secure.getmeregistered.com/get_information.php?event_id=9736

Other fabulous organizations that could use your support include:

  • Seedlings (www.seedlings.org).  Seedlings provides Braille and twin-vision children’s books at a low cost.  They also offer the Book Angel program, where children with a visual impairment can get two of their books free (FREE!) each year.
  • The Perkins School for the Blind has a matching gift opportunity:  each dollar raised by December 31, up to $25,000, will be matched by a generous donor.  Learn more at https://www.perkins.org/supportperkins/
  • You can shop while supporting the NFB through December 3 by Bidding for Equality at http://www.biddingforgood.com/auction/AuctionHome.action?auctionId=200786605
