With the holiday season kicking into gear, you may be starting to think about tackling the lines on Black Friday at your favorite big box stores, or rushing to your computer on Cyber Monday to get the best deals. It's common to lose sight of what the holidays are all about, or the "reason for the season".
#GivingTuesday is a reminder that the holidays aren't for getting gifts, but for giving them to those who need them the most.
#GivingTuesday is a global giving movement in all 50 states and in countries around the world. Millions of people have come together to support and champion the causes they believe in and the communities in which they live. Furthermore, it is a celebration of America's greatest traditions: generosity, entrepreneurialism, and community.
On November 28, 2017, please consider giving back to Easterseals Michigan. Our purpose is crucial - to change the way the world defines and views disabilities by making profound, positive differences in people's lives every day. Your gift will help us make these positive differences. Whether you want to help those with mental illness, behavioral health conditions, or physical disabilities, know that Easterseals provides services for all of these conditions, and many more.
All too often, mental and behavioral health is overlooked. Let's change how people look at these conditions. Let's lift people up, instead of putting them down because of their differences. This holiday season, let's give back to those who so desperately need our help, and remember the "reason for the season".
