On this day, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.

#MyGivingStory

150321_2577This November, the GivingTuesday movement is running #MyGivingStory, a new storytelling contest that will highlight acts of generosity that may take place out of the public spotlight. They are asking individuals across the country to share their personal reasons for giving, and then share those stories with their communities.

 

As a supporter of Joe’s Movement Emporium, we’d be honored if you would take this opportunity to reflect upon your commitment to our work moving bodies, minds and communities in Prince George’s County and beyond. Winners will receive GlobalGiving gift cards ranging from $100-500. The nonprofit they write about in their essay will receive $1,000-5,000 grants. Upworthy will also develop and share articles featuring the two first-place winning stories.
