Today is almost over here in Houston Texas and it is certainly over for many of our friends and family on the other side of the world. If you didn’t know today is Giving Tuesday, a day of giving moved by the power of social media and collaboration. It is a day to celebrate and encourage the idea of giving back. I will again support NOAH this #GivingTuesday by donating some money on behalf of the Campbell family. The National Organization for Albinism and Hypopigmentation (NOAH) has been instrumental in educating me and my family about Albinism. I will also continue to write about albinism in the hopes I can spread awareness one reader at a time.
The idea of giving back is simple and has a BIG impact, donate or volunteer and then tell others about how you are giving back. Here is a link to the Giving Tuesday website for those who are interested in Giving Back. They have provided a directory of organizations, events, charities and you can search by your location. Even though Tuesday is almost over for us do you really need an excuse or a specific day to donate? Without charities like NOAH people like myself would be less informed and feel less connected. Take the time, choose a cause close to your heart and give back a little.
