giveback yxe

Processed with VSCOcam with hb1 presetIf 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. :-)))

    Good on you. This Noah’s Ark is full and this kind gesture is as good as adopting. The more you give the more you receive. to animals. They don’t have thumbs and because we have totally domesticated them are totally reliant on us. That’s a horrible legacy. You go girl.

  • Hello, friends. My name is Emory. I live on the Canadian prairies with my husband, daughter, and animals. Welcome!

  • A few weeks ago we were running around in short sleeve dresses. Now we're in jackets and hats. 🍂 A horribly blurry picture that pretty much sums up our week together. It's been 5 days and our home is nearly flu-free. Dada is off working in a different province, (smiles aside) Remy is not happy with me today, our house is a renovation disaster, and I have a photography session scheduled tomorrow that I'm not yet sure if I need to hire a babysitter for. I'm not going to lie, I'm really looking forward to this week being over with. It was not easy, however that's life. There is so much that I do have to be thankful for! We are in good health 99% of the time. My husband finally has a great job. I am lucky to be able to work when I want at what I want. We have a house. Most importantly, I have my little goose to snuggle with. I sincerely hope that if anyone else is having a bad day/week/month/year, that you can also find the silver lining. Our own life is not for everyone, nor is it Instagram perfect. If we're lucky, it is the one that we desire, even in the difficult times. Enjoy your weekend!
