Happy Holiday's everybody. This week is the start of the craziest month of the year for most of us. Lots of holiday events, parties, sending out cards, buying gifts for loved ones, gift exchanges and year-end festivities.
It's a great time of year, but it's also a time of year to think about others and give back.
Today is the national "Day of Giving", a day when we are to encourage people to give to charity and help out their fellow man. This is a great thing, and is something we encourage all of you to do.
Many corporations are doing "matching" donations in honor of the Day of Giving, so be sure you are looking to see where your giving could have the most impact. In addition, many employers (mine included) do a "match" for charitable donations throughout the year.
Today we are also announcing that ALL of our site revenue for December will be donated to the amazing Give Kids The World.

If you donate to GKTW today (Tuesday December 1), an anonymous donor is matching your donation up to $50,000. So lets make sure GKTW hits that $50,000 total for today. This is a charity that is near and dear to our hearts around here. Information on the Day of Giving event is below.
We have one day for giving thanks. Two days for getting deals. And one day for giving back.
#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving where people from all over the world give to their favorite charities.
Together, we can make a difference in the lives of children with life-threatening illnesses.
On this day only, your donation will be matched up to $50,000 by an anonymous donor which means you can DOUBLE your impact!
Happy Holidays and Happy #GivingTuesday!
In addition, below are some of the great charities that are near and dear to us, even if you can't give of your hard earned money, find a way to donate some of your time to help.
All of these charities need volunteers for one thing or another. There are also walks offered by pretty much all charities now and are a great way to stay fit while giving something back.
Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Los Angeles
National Multiple Sclerosis Society
Alzheimer's Disease Resource Center
Today (December 1) is also World's Aids Day, so here are a couple of great charities in honor of that.
