I received a tweet from a great philanthropic friend by the name of Carlos Garcia today. Carlo also completed 365 days of giving – he is Living Philanthropic. Carlo`s tweet asked me to share some news – it was titled Cyber Giving Monday. Read Carlo`s post and consider giving today and be part of the new philanthropy that is sweeping or world. It`s time we all started Living Philanthropic.
Let’s all take the Cyber Giving Monday Challenge. (Taken directly from Living Philanthropic)
Step 1. Find a organization you love and want to support. (I’m choosing Atin Afrika Foundation)
Step 2. Make an online contribution, whatever you can afford $1, $5, $1,000 on Monday, November 28th, 2011.
Step 4: Report your donation to the Living Philanthropic tally: http://bit.ly/lp-tally
Step 5: Invite a friend to do the same.
Easy like Monday Morning…
Let’s make this Monday, one of the best days of giving. Happy holidays!
365give is choosing to donate to Atin Afrika. Here are just a few gift items the children could use this holiday season. please consider giving a child in Uganda the gift of basic necessities this season.
$20 Daily Essentials: T-shirt, shorts, running shoes

We make a living by what we get; we make a life by what we give.
True charity is the desire to be useful to others without thought of recompense.
The highest expression of love is to give, without expecting.
Do all the good you can,
By all the means you can,
In all the ways you can,
In all the places you can,
At all the times you can,
To all the people you can,
As long as ever you can.
I expect to pass through this world but once. Any good thing, therefore, that I can do or any kindness that I can show for any fellow creature, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.
I do not know what your destiny will be, but the one thing I know: the only ones among you who will really be happy are those who will have sought and found how to serve.
If you want to make a decision to be a strategic philanthropist … it has to be something you’re deeply passionate about -It’s not sustainable unless you’re in it for your emotional connection.
We can all change the world, one give at a time.

If you are not poor enough to take charity, you are rich enough to give it.

Day 361: Give 361
Do you know what a Puppy Mill is? Do you know how many dogs spend their lives in conditions that are so horrible they are hard to describe? Some of these images may help to explain the life of a dog in a puppy mill. It’s not a life at all.
The t-shirt I received is made by a company called The Fleas Knees. Their mission is simple- bring awareness and funds ($5.00 from every shirt sold) to Best Friends Animal Society: Puppies Aren’t Products Campaign.
This t-shirt is a gift you can give that will keep giving every time the receiver wears it. Just by wearing a t-shirts with a message like this one can bring awareness and compassion to dogs that truly need it.
Buy a shirt but most importantly don’t buy a “Puppy Mill puppy” and tell your local pet store to stop supporting an industry that creates so much pain.
Time Commitment: 0
Cost: 0 (it was a gift!)
