This time of year is full of hustle and bustle.  It’s hard to believe it’s Thanksgiving week already!  And one thing I’ll never understand is how we go from Thanksgiving (a day that’s all about family, peace, gratitude, and generosity) to Black Friday (a day smothered in hyper-consumerism, consumption, and a total free-for-all).  And then somewhere along the way, Cyber Monday became quite the big deal too.  Did you know a whole new movement is gaining momentum?  (Actually, it’s a global thing).  The movement? Giving Tuesday… and it is December 2nt, the day immediately following Cyber Monday –the perfect chance to ‘reset’ and get back in the giving game.  Have you heard about the hoopla surrounding the #givingtuesday movement?  It’s pretty cool. Check this out – it’s a great, short little video that explains it all.

Giving Tuesday is a global movement meant to celebrate generosity. All you have to do is find a way to give in whatever manner you want, in whatever way you can, and then… if you want to inspire others to give to the cause you care about it, share your story of giving on socials. (Don’t forget to use the hashtag #givingtuesday) – Give your time, give your smile, give a gift… or give your money.  It’s really as simple as that. There are so many ways to show generosity, and even the smallest of small ways count!

Are you stumped on how to share the love on Giving Tuesday? We’re happy to help! One Mission is a great resource for anyone wanting to give back. Have you seen all the amazing fundraisers on our website? SO many great causes… a perfect Giving Tuesday is, literally, right at your fingertips. You choose the cause that you want to support and either donate or shop to show your support. Our fundraisers receive a whole 40% of every purchase–that’s money well spent!

We’re getting into the giving spirit too and are launching a Twelve Days of Giving (#12daysofGiving) campaign that will run from December 1st through December 12th. Each day we will reveal an awesome new promotion that you can use towards the purchase of One Mission products. It might be a discount off of one of our fabulous product lines or maybe even an extra treat with your purchase. Who knows? If you want to take advantage of these promos, make sure to sign up for our email newsletter (the signup is found on the bottom of this page).  The anticipation is killing us!

Have a wonderful and peaceful and gratitude-filled Thanksgiving, friends.
