I copied this from an email I got regarding Giving Tuesday this past December, and I wanted to share it. They say it way better than I could. Giving Tuesday is a global movement and not just a fundraising day. It's all about giving: Your time, your talent, your money, your support to bring more generosity in an incredibly self centered world. I am happy to be a part of that day and of that revolution. Thank you all for your continued support of B.E.S.T. Changing the world one dog at a time!
But at the same time, it seems the world around us has become radically less generous. The need for more generosity is urgent. The need for a movement to create real, systemic change is very real. The GivingTuesday team believes the world is very ready for a generosity revolution.
What we need is not incremental but radical generosity — to reimagine our world from the ground up as a place where we don’t just work harder to alleviate all these harms but one where we don’t tolerate them in the first place.
GivingTuesday is a space to collectively imagine that world, a prism through which we can see what might be possible. We hope you'll take a few minutes to read and share and imagine with us a more generous world.
