Last November we reported on "Giving Tuesday", a growing movement that takes place the Tuesday following Thanksgiving. Giving Tuesday, or better known as #GivingTuesday, was created to promote the spirit and act of giving through the use of social media sites.
In the post, I highlighted an organization that I support, called Razia's Ray of Hope Foundation. Run by Razia Jan, an Afghan woman from Boston, the Foundation funds a girls school in Afghanistan in an effort to improve their lives through education.
Much to my surprise, I saw an article this weekend in the NY Times about the school and its progress. At it's start in 2008 there were 109 girls attending. Now there are nearly 600. You can read the full article here.
Whatever cause is close to your heart we hope you'll spread the word on Giving Tuesday!
