As we prepare for the Thanksgiving holiday and consider all of the things that we are thankful for there are two video promotions that seem to stay top of mind. Who can’t get that “Good Goes Around and Round” Cheerios commercial out of their head? You have to love the approach and the feel good vibe of this spot. But, nothing drives home the idea of gratitude more than the Christmas Morning video that was shared by Forest Hill Church last December.

We all have so much to be thankful for and next week’s #GivingTuesday provides a perfect opportunity to give back. Whether you decide to give locally (there are over 3,500 nonprofits in Rockland County alone) or at the national level, this global giving movement is something we can all agree is a good thing.

Whatever the charity of your choice, show your gratitude and appreciation on Tuesday, November 28th. Facebook and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation will match up to $2 Million of funds raised on Facebook for U.S. nonprofits. Facebook is also waiving all fees for donations made to non-profits on Facebook this #GivingTuesday.
