...a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.It’s a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give something more. Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving. Join us and be a part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity.
This year I would like to directing your attention to the The Hope Institute's #GivingTuesday campaign. At Hope, they provide 24/7 care for kids with cognitive and physical disabilities -- especially kids with Autism Spectrum Disorders. They are not a giant, international charity. Instead, they have been quietly providing kids from all over Illinois -- many of whom are profoundly challenged -- with amazing, compassionate care for over 50 years.
It's a cause that is very dear to me --
-- so if you are inclined to give this Tuesday, I would strongly urge you give to Hope.
And tell 'em "DG sent me".

Regular posting will continue as usual, but I'll be keeping this one pinned to the top of the blog until #GivingTuesday is over.
