February Roundup: Giving Matters

February Roundup: Giving Matters

February, my favorite short month flew by, and we’ve already completed a whole month of the #Give10 Reboot.To be completely honest, February didn’t feel short or easy. A lot of things happening around the world have made my heart feel sad.

#give10 kicks off with Traffick Jam Asia

The hardest part of kicking off the first week of #give10 year two has been deciding which of our 366 amazing year one causes to pick first. Last year when I had the same starter’s dilemma, I followed the age old advice that “Charity begins at home.” Since this worked before I’m going with that… more…
