Spread the Joy on #GivingTuesday
Folks, it’s #GivingTuesday. Have you heard about it? Even if you haven’t, the name is pretty self-explanatory. Today, after our overly-excessive spending on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, we have a day to ease our guilt. Today, we give back to non-profit organizations that make a difference in the lives of our fellow human beings. In other words, today we will help Go Jen Go!
And you’re in luck because the way you can help couldn’t be easier!
As many of you know, Go Jen Go’s amazing founder, Jen Pagani, thought about breast cancer victims all year round and especially at Christmas. She knew that many families couldn’t afford to purchase Christmas presents because of the extraordinary cost of paying for cancer treatment and all the extra expenses that come along with it. So she started Operation Spread the Joy. She asked families to create their wish lists and then our amazing Go Jen Go supporters all became elves in order to put presents under those Christmas trees.
We know how much this project meant to Jen and we know how much Jen meant to all of us. So, in her honor this year, let’s take care of these families in style!
Here’s how it works. Click on the Sign Up Genius link, view the list of requests, and sign up to fill one (or more!). Make your purchases, then take your unwrapped gifts to the appointed spot (details are on the Sign Up Genius page). We’ll take care of the rest.
You know how they say it’s better to give than to receive? That’s what #GivingTuesday is all about. Jen understood this; she gave so much to so many people. Let’s keep her spirit alive today by being our very best selves (and elves!) and thinking about how we can further her mission this holiday season.
