If you are either a Instagram or Twitter fan, you may have heard of the hashtag #GivingTuesday or #GivebackTuesday. Basically, it’s an internet trend that is supposed to spark a series of generosity and charity, not just on one particular day, but all days.
Yesterday, a local Instagram page @mysaskatoon posted a photo with a new hashtag #GivebackYXE. (YXE is the airport code for our city.) Underneath the photo was the caption:
“After the shopping madness of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, GivingTuesday provides a nice nudge toward sharing our time and money with local charities and non-profit organizations. Today, and any day, share the love with #givebackyxe and get inspired by the generosity of others in our great city.”
I took that as a sign that I, too, should be generous. Soon after reading that, I posted the above photo of Truman on Potomac Trading Post’s IG page, with this inscription:
“PTP will be donating $1 for every $5 spent to local animal rescue shelters around #YXE for the duration of the entire week! So what are you waiting for? Start browsing, we have something for everyone!”
So there you have it. If you would like to support both a great cause and a great little independent store, then click on this link, and take a look around! Instructions on how to order are at the top of each page.
Have a wonderful day! Feel free to pay it forward. :-)))
