Today is “Giving Tuesday”. It’s a day where everyone is encouraged to give their time, money or their voice to charity, after the spending sprees of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It’s a day to give something back.
So what am I doing?
I’m giving my voice by posting about #GivingTuesday to encourage everyone else to give back too — you can find more information on the Giving Tuesday website.
I’m also posting about the “Eye to Eye” 2016 charity walk in London, UK to raise money for Moorfields Eye Charity too — you can find more information on about the event on Moorfields’ website including details of how to register to participate. The event only started in March 2015, so it’s quite new, but it seems to be taking off now!
I’ll be giving my time to participate in Eye to Eye 2016. I’ll be walking 14 miles around London in March 2016, that’s a little over half a marathon in distance. Hopefully it won’t be snowy or icy then. This is the very first charity event I’ll be participating in, and I wanted to do something specifically for eye research both in terms of raising money and the actual event, so Eye to Eye is perfect. If you’d like to sponsor me, you can do so on my sponsorship page — every penny goes directly to Moorfields Eye Charity.
Finally, I’m giving money to Moorfields Eye Charity too. In fact I already have.
What are you giving back…?
