The holidays have always been my favourite time of year. Like why wouldn’t it be when Elf is playing on tv like every single day?! But seriously, everything from the music, decorations and even the snow (who’s totally standing me up this year, like where you at?) makes me feel so happy. But what I love most about December is that people come together in the spirit of giving.
Which is why I’m so excited to work with My Giving Moment, a campaign led by the Rideau Hall Foundation and the Governer General of Canada, that encourages millennials like you and I to get involved and give back!
I think we can all easily predict the type of pictures we’ll be seeing on our Twitter, Instagram and even newsfeeds this season: shots of Christmas trees from every angle possible, nicely wrapped presents, maybe a few ugly christmas sweater selfies and of course lots and lots of food. But this year I encourage you to instead #SnapSomeGood and post a picture of you doing a good deed! Whether it’s making cupcakes for a charity bake sale or a big pile of clothes ready for donation. Why? It’s simple: when we see good, we do good and when we do good, we feel good! Mygivingmoment.ca has a ton of ideas of some great volunteering activities you can try your hand at this year, and for some more things to do especially when you get bored this winter break (because let’s face it it’s bound to happen after you finish binge watching that show on Netflix), be sure to check out my latest youtube video below!
