Merry Christmas!!

Merry Christmas!!

This has been such a busy year at Giving Goods.  Thanks to all of you who have used Giving Goods to help direct your donations and volunteer time.  I am amazed at the generosity in the DFW area and I’m looking forward to a new year filled with meeting new people and working together to make giving bigger and better than ever before in DFW.

I hope everyone has a fabulous holiday with family and friends.  I wish you all the warmest of blessings!!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

Children Giving Back!

Children Giving Back!

I was asked to talk to a girl scout troop in Saginaw on Monday about giving and how they could make a difference in their community. They were so eager to share how they have previously given and had awesome ideas for things they could do to help others. I would love to bottle that enthusiasm and spread it around. If all of us just had a little bit of that enthusiasm, it makes me wonder what our communities would look like..Life is so busy, it is hard to find the time. The reality is that giving can take only a few minutes or as much time as we like. Have you done something to make a difference today?

As we prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus with our families, I wanted to take a minute to wish all of you a Merry Christmas!  I want to thank you for all you have done to help those in need in the North Texas area this year.   I also want to thank you all for using Giving Goods and passing us on to your friends.  Thank you for recognizing the need of this site and utilizing it to make the best use of your donations and volunteer time.  You understand that by giving to others that not only do we help others, but we help our communities grow stronger, and we become leaders for the next generation.

Happy Anniversary To Us!!

Happy Anniversary To Us!!

It is hard to believe that Giving Goods became active 1 year ago today, though the ideas had been bouncing around long before than that.  This has been an awesome year and I can’t believe how far we have come in just one SHORT year!!  We have 96 followers on Facebook, we are so close to 100.  This would be a great time to share Giving Goods with your friends!!  When we first started some days we didn’t have any hits on the site, now we have hits everyday with most days averaging AT LEAST 20 and many days of hitting 40 views, sometimes more.   In September last year I appeared on Good Morning Texas and we had almost 800 views that month!

Being Kind-Thank You to a Stranger

I wanted to take a minute to say thank you to the kind man I met at Boopa’s Bagel Deli today.  I went by to pick up a race packet (I will be doing my 2nd 5K on Saturday, and Boopa’s is hosting it).  I was waiting for through traffic to pass so I could pull into a parking space.  A man driving through pulled into the space.  I was miffed, but understood that he probably didn’t see me there or thought I was waiting to turn to enter the through traffic.  So I just pulled into a parking space further down.

Merry Christmas

It is hard to believe that Christmas is here, especially when we’ve been having 80 degree weather.  Many of you have already completed your donations for this season and some will be volunteering and donating all the way through Christmas Day.  I wanted to take the time to wish you a Merry Christmas.  I hope you have a wonderful time with your friends and family.
