It’s #GivingTuesday


After the chaos of Black Friday and deals of Cyber Monday, it is heart warming to come to #GivingTuesday.

Finally, a day that’s all about what the season is supposed to be about! Giving to those in need. Caring about more than ourselves and the commercialism that has become Christmas for so many. Providing for those who can’t provide for themselves. I love it!

Just last week, David and I had a conversation about finding a way for our family to give back. Not just dollars, but time and talents. We are searching for a meaningful way to teach our kids the importance of helping others in the world. Finding a way to put a smile on a child’s face is our target. I will post more as we decide how to do that.

In the meantime, I am really excited to have been asked by the great folks at Dayton Children’s Medical Center to share this fantastic new video with you. The video portrays how kids often use their vivid imaginations to cope with the fact that they have cancer. It also showcases the special team of people at Dayton Children’s that help these kids every step of the way.

Get your tissues ready. I hope it motivates you and your family to give back this season. There is so much that each of us can do to make a difference and to teach our kids the true reason for the season.
