Giving Tuesday is a new
concept, a day to think about giving back after indulging in turkey, dessert
and Christmas shopping. It is held on the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving, the
day after Cyber Monday.
We shouldn’t need a special day to think about giving back but it helps when our days get so hectic trying to plan the perfect Christmas in addition to doing daily tasks.
It’s not too late to give back today. One simple way is giving blood through LifeSource Blood Centers. LifeSource is donating $1 to local food banks for every unit donated now through Sunday, December 8.
In addition, the community donor centers. You can take non-perishable items to the center when you donate blood and the items will be taken to a local food bank. Find a local donation center here.
LifeSource is hoping to raise more than $5,700, which will provide about 28,600 meals to Illinois families, according to its website.
