You've probably been planning for tomorrow to involve a fancy dinner, a Hallmark card, some roses, and/or a few too many chocolates.
But you do that every year!
What if this year you gave a Valentine to a girl you don’t know?
- $25 could buy some candy, or it could enroll an unemployed American mom like Wanda in a 5-week program to help her find a sustainable job.
- $50 might cover drinks and dessert, or it could pay for a whole school year's tuition and fees for a girl like Diama in Senegal.
- $75 might get you a dinner out, or it could give five entrepreneurs like Sharswat the business and accounting training they need so they can register and run their own co-op business in Nepal.
What if, for one day, we all committed to spreading love, being generous, and saying "yes" to people and causes that need our help? We have a hunch that you’re just the kind of person who might be into this. Sign the Generosity Day pledge here, and click here to find a cause that warms your heart.
Happy Generosity Day,
Alison Carlman and the GlobalGiving Team
p.s. To prevent any relationship problems that may stem from giving a gift to a girl you don’t know, consider making your donation in honor of your original Valentine, and sending a personalized e-card or print-at-home tribute card as evidence of your love and generosity.
p.p.s. Just to demonstrate how grateful I am for you, I gave your Valentine to someone else. :)
