Just as for Giving Tuesday 2013, She Lives Free has once again joined #GivingTuesday, a first of its kind effort to harness the collective power of charities, families, businesses and individuals to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season.

With the help of the United Nations Foundation and other founding partners, more than 10,000 organizations have joined the movement and are providing creative ways people can embrace #GivingTuesday and collaborate in their giving efforts to create more meaningful results.

Coinciding with the Thanksgiving Holiday and the kickoff of the holiday shopping season, the mission of #GivingTuesday is to inspire people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they support and help create a better world.

Come back tomorrow to learn about an amazing initiative for helping families to have conversations about how they’re going to give on Giving Tuesday and beyond – not just money, but time and simple acts of kindness  🙂

Make A Difference Mondays is a weekly linkup designed to encourage and inspire us to live each day on purpose—making a meaningful difference in someone’s life in even the smallest of ways. There will be five women regularly co-hosting this link-up that will appear on all five of our blogs and we also have three wonderful co-hosts who will fill in as guest hosts on the occasional day that a regular co-host is not able to post. Read on to learn more about our vision, mission, and how to link up!
Our mission is to provide a consistent gathering place for like-minded women to build online connections, share inspiration, and provide mutual encouragement and accountability as we seek to live intentionally and make a difference in the lives of those around us.
Every Monday we will invite bloggers to link-up any blog posts that encourage women to live life on purpose. This could include testimonies or goals from your own life, small acts of kindness or service, creative tips or ideas for showing consideration to others — the possibilities are endless. Our objective is to use our God-given time and resources to His glory!
Are we friends on facebook yet?  If not, what are you waiting for?  ;)
