Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesday: Holiday to ‘Be’ List

Giving Tuesday began in 2012 to counterbalance the rampant consumerism that has crept into our culture with the shopping frenzy known as “Black Friday.”

We also encourage you to give some “Comfort and Joy” to a gentler world by making a gift of human kindness!

Here are six things you can be, not do, to share Comfort and Joy on Giving Tuesday, or any day.

If you do (or be) any of these, let us know about it by leaving a comment below—but don’t tell us what you did. That should remain your secret. Tell us, please, what your act of kindness did for you: your heart, your spirit, your day.

  • Be kind
  • Be gentle
  • Be welcoming
  • Be a changemaker
  • Be a good listener
  • Be generous to the Dominican Sisters when you see the “Comfort and Joy” Christmas appeal in the mail next week!

Thanks for making a gentler, kinder world!
