Happy Tuesday everyone! Today we celebrate the first annual #GIVINGTUESDAY. What is GIVINGTUESDAY all about?

“We have a day for giving thanks.
We have two for getting deals.
It’s time to have a day for giving back.”

Individuals, families, businesses and non-profits around the country are coming together to participate in acts of giving. At Live Worldly, we are donating an addiitonal 5% from every purchase today to our partner non-profits. So if you buy a Live Peruvian Snow Beanie, we’ll be contributing an extra 5% of your purchase to Water For People.

One of the best things about GIVINGTUESDAY is that you can give in many ways… money, time, support, or hugs (the best currency ever). Yesterday, our Live Worldly team volunteered at SAME Cafe (So All May Eat). The first non-profit restaurant in Denver, SAME Cafe’s mission is serving good food for the greater good. Daily menu selections are made based on fresh, organic and local ingredients funded by patron’s donations.

With the philosophy that everyone, no matter their financial status, deserves the chance to eat healthy food and be treated with respect, the cafe also allows diners to pay for their meal through an hour of volunteer work. There is no set menu price, just a donation box for diners to pay what they can. And that’s exactly what GIVINGTUESDAY is all about, simply to give what you can.

So, what will you give today? Leave a comment or post on our Facebook wall and be sure to include #GIVINGTUESDAY. Let’s spread the word about this great new holiday!
