Your Generosity Inspires Us!
In 2012, #GivingTuesday was just a small idea shared by a handful of people at the 92nd Street Y and the United Nations Foundation in New York City. Although they had likely hoped, they had no idea that their idea would be so impactful.
Today, millions of people just like you are generously giving their time, their voices, and their money in support of the organizations that matter the most to them. Tackling issues like poverty, education, homelessness, mental health, and so many others. #GivingTuesday has become a day when we as a society are given the chance to right some of the woes in our world. A chance to take a stand and make a meaningful and positive impact. It's beyond powerful to see happen.
And all of us at Mindfulness First, want to thank you.
Not just for donating to our cause on this amazing day of giving, but for inspiring generosity all around you. Today, we fully funded a scholarship for one teacher and are so close to funding a second scholarship! They say the best way to lead is by example and you are the proof of this. We're so inspired by you and appreciate you being part of our Mindfulness First community! For us, #GivingTuesday is an ideal example of how the world around us can be. A moment in time where we get to see the potential of our humanity. When we all collaborate to be a part of something larger than ourselves, we all benefit in meaningful and measurable ways.
Today we are filled with so much gratitude as we watch the world around us, coming together in support of itself. Thank you for inspiring us!
