This most generous of holidays was founded to promote and celebrate giving in all its forms. The festival is also a grassroots movement to praise and encourage kindness wherever it occurs. The aim of the celebration is actually twofold – to raise awareness of the importance of philanthropy, and encourage those not already involved to throw themselves into volunteer and charity work, and to acknowledge the efforts of those who already work to help their fellow humans, and deserve to be celebrated.
On this day:
1. Find a cause or organization you care deeply about and donate your time by volunteering.
2. Donate gently used goods in your home to a local shelter or organization.
3. Give your time collecting donations for a cause that is close to your heart.
4. If you have the ability, donate funds.
