It is time for the fourth annual 12 Weeks of Giving series! I cannot believe how quickly time speeds by. There are only weeks left in this calendar year and with the holiday season approaching the giving spirit is in the air.
I am honored to have Brandy from Happily Blended joining me this year for the 12 week challenge. Instead of only giving gifts at Christmas we take this time to show how you can give back to your community over a 12 week period no matter how big or small your gesture is. What is truly important is the thought and effort to make a difference!
Throughout the 12 Weeks of Giving series we plan to get our family involved. I believe it is important to teach my children that giving is more important than receiving. Plus what better way to bond with my family than to work together to help others?
I hope you join along with us throughout the rest of 2014 and share your photos and progress online by using hashtag #12WeeksGiving. Whether you send a handwritten letter to a distant friend to brighten their day, volunteer your time serving at the local shelter or donate money to a cause close to your heart – we want to hear about it! Share photos with us on Instagram, tweet with us on Twitter, connect with us on Facebook and join the conversation in the comments.
