Check out our new site at www.giving-party.org. You can now read about our Giving Party plans online at that site and contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll be reporting on the success of the Live Small.Give Big party in Charlotte and the Low Country Giving Party in Charleston on the site, as well as reporting from our own party. Maybe I’ll get fancy and do some live blogging while the party is going on! We have well over 100 people committed to coming to our Chapel Hill Giving Party this year. We can’t wait!
Give, because Peter Walsh says so… November 12, 2008
Peter Walsh, the Aussie organizer and Oprah’s personal pick for organizing folks on her show, just included this in his monthly newsletter regarding holiday gift giving:
Consider giving an “experience” rather than a “thing”
All of us are in tight economic times – keep this in mind going into the holiday season. A concert, theater ticket, restaurant gift certificate, or even a donation to a particular charity can leave a more lasting impression than another bottle of perfume or one more unnecessary article of clothing.
So, do as Peter says! Join us at our Giving Party and make a donation in honor of those you care about.
