Its #GivingTuesday. Choose something you are passionate about and make a contribution. It can be monetary or otherwise. It can be large or small. But do it and make a positive social impact. Its food for you and good for society. And in case you didn’t know even when someone just witnesses an act of generosity and kindness it has a positive ripple effect on them/us.
