Even Austinites who like to offer time and funds regularly– weekly offering, contributing in pals’ names for birthdays, taking part in crowdfunding when it shows up– it’s a lot to monitor. Especially throughout the holiday, searching for pals, household, and busy-time-of-the-year incidentals, a great deal of our great intents fade to the background.
There is an around the world vacation to keep individuals on track: GivingTuesday, a current addition to the Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday pipeline, asks individuals to take an action back from the consumerist shuffle and think of what they can offer beyond their normal routines.
