Most of my posts are about freebies and giveaways, things you can get. In this season, it is so easy to get The Gimmies, you know the syndrome, we have all seen it in our children and have most likely seen it in ourselves from time to time. While there is nothing wrong with getting, sometimes it is better for us to give. It makes our hearts feel good and it can cure a case of The Gimmies in a flash.
To that end, I want to tell you about The $1 Give, the brainchild of a couple of Mom Bloggers. The premise behind The $1 Give is that if we all band together to each give one dollar every day in December we can make a difference. They will have a featured charity each day and ask that you give $1 to each cause, for a total donation of $31. The theory being that if enough people participate our $1 can add up to a lot of good. I think this is a wonderful idea and plan to participate myself and would encourage you all to at least consider donating as well. I know money can be tight in this economy and especially this time of year, but if you can help on a small level maybe we can all make a difference collectively.
