A Little Bit of Good News

A Little Bit of Good News

We all need a bit of good news, right?
You may remember that in recent years a new tradition has taken root around the post-Thanksgiving craziness: after Black Friday and Cyber Monday, a day was set aside to encourage us to think about sharing with our less fortunate neighbors: Giving Tuesday.
Now, amid the tough times we’re living through, a new Giving Tuesday has been declared, and it’s happening next week, on May 5.

At the same time, there’s another encouragement to be generous: the CARES Act, which was signed into law in March, allows for an above-the-line deduction for up to $300 in charitable giving for taxpayers who aren’t itemizing their deductions.

For many people the Covid-19 crisis has resulted in terrible hardship, and we know that makes it more challenging to be generous with your charitable giving. But it also means that more people are in need, especially those who have lost their jobs, and along with that, their health insurance.

If you’re experiencing hard times, our hearts go out to you.

If you’re doing OK, please consider giving for those who can’t. You can do that here.

Stay safe!
