It’s that time of year when every one wants to get into the “giving spirit”, but it shouldn’t just be around the holidays that we do this since there’s people, animals, countries and environments suffering all year long that could use help.
I for one like to donate non perishable food items when I can, because I know there’s a lot of people out there that could use the extra help so they don’t have to go hungry or know where their next meal is going to come from.
And on occasion, I like to pay it forward and buy someones meal or drink thru the drive through just to show them an act of kindness so that maybe they’ll return the favor… not necessarily then if they can’t, but sometime in the future.
Right now thru the end of the month, you can Join Paul Mitchell’s global family and help give back by including the hashtag #GivingIsMyStyle on your social networking sites. For every social post on Twitter or Instagram that includes this hashtag, they will donate $1 to one of the 6 charities below. ($1 per person and up to $200,000 total)
