Today is the 2nd Annual Global Giving Day to support women around the world and I am honored to be among many who are linking arms and blogs and hearts (and wallets!) and raising awareness for nine amazing organizations who are making a real difference in the lives of women and children around the world!
This is the one post a year where I encourage you to give...
Listen... here's the deal:
I don't like to ask for money.
I don't like to make you feel guilty or ever want you to think that I am unaware of the serious restraints of budget and income.
I get it.
I mean - things are tight, but I am blessed. I know many, not just around the world but just around the corner, are strapped and can't give --even if they wanted to. That's fine.
If this is you, please keep reading! There is still something(s) you can do if you are unable to give monetarily!
But many can give and maybe just don't know the need or have no idea where to give.
Lastly, many fall for the same lie that I fell for for years: that often times we think if we can't Go (give) Big we should just Go Home... we look at these international issues of poverty, human trafficking, slavery, and violence and hopelessness and we think, well --we think there is no hope.
BUT GOD, right?
