There’s Black Friday. Small Business Saturday. Cyber Monday. Now do a little good this holiday season and participate in #GivingTuesday.
The Hive Society has built its brand around philanthropy. It’s at the core of everything we do. It’s who we are. Our vision is to inspire everyday people to be philanthropic in all that they do. You don’t have to be a trust fund billionaire to be a philanthropist. You can be the 6-year old who loves sorting rice at the Houston Food Bank or the 66-year old woman who takes meals to the homeless shelters. Philanthropy is simply the desire to promote the welfare of others.
This Tuesday, we invite you to join us in #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.
Created by 92nd Street Y—a cultural center in New York City that, since 1874, has been bringing people together around the values of service and giving back—#GivingTuesday connects diverse groups of individuals, communities and organizations around the world for one common purpose: to celebrate and encourage giving. A team of influencers and founding partners joined forces—collaborating across sectors, offering expertise and working tirelessly—to launch #GivingTuesday and have continued to shape, grow and strengthen the movement.

#GivingTuesday harnesses the undeniable power of social media platforms and encourages visibility of people’s generosity to bring about tangible changes in their communities. Whether you donate your time, resources, or talents, your unique brand of giving contributes to the betterment of the world, your world. #GivingTuesday brings together nonprofits, businesses, corporations, and families to magnify small acts of kindness.
How you choose to give is totally up to you, but we’ve made a short list of some of our local nonprofit friends and family you can consider.
The Hive Society, Inc.
Okay, okay. This isn’t self-serving. I know you may think of us as the bees who run that blog, but we are, in fact, a public nonprofit. Canvas and Cupcakes? Houston Cares? Axiom? Our partnership with #Hashtaglunchbag? Adopting Families for the Holidays? The things we do cost money and we wouldn’t be able to do them without your support!
Want to help us fulfill our mission? Donate via PayPal. You can choose any amount to donate and your #GivingTuesday donations will be used specifically for our 2015 Adopt-a-Family project.
