Today is Giving Tuesday, an international initiative that encourages everyone to donate time or money to charitable organizations. Started in 2012, Giving Tuesday has inspired millions to donate to their favorite charities and has encouraged several companies to provide matching donations.
There's still time to go online and donate- be sure to also check out some of the companies/organizations that are providing matching donations and other donation incentives to make an even bigger impact!
I am donating to Every Mother Counts, an organization that addresses maternal mortality around the world, including in the United States, where maternal mortality rates have risen over the past twenty years. If you are also interested in donating to this organization, please go to www.everymothercounts.org.
