12 Days of Giving

Give a Gift That Counts

We’re on the final countdown to Christmas, so – if you haven’t already – it’s a good time to start thinking about whether you might like to donate this holiday season.  I know many of you volunteer at food banks, collect coats for the homeless, and purchase toys for children – and I love that!  But on the off-chance you’re still looking for ways to do something for others, it couldn’t be easier than with Google’s Twelve Days of Giving.  Click here to visit their Twelve Days of Giving website to make quick and easy donations to a great variety of organizations that need your support – Google reveals one organization a day for 12 days with easy access to information about the charity and what your cold hard cash will do.

And if you’d like to up your charitable giving throughout the year, check out the One Today app by Google, as well!

Also, if you’d like to donate a fruitcake to me, well, don’t.

Ready, Set, Go (best synth ever):
