Americans want to be charitable with their money. That’s why there is an effort every year after Thanksgiving for #givingtuesday. But with the unprecedented needs of nonprofits right now, there is a newer effort. It is #givingtuesdaynow. 


It is today, May 5, and you might see the hashtag or a post on social media asking for you to give. As we know, the COVID-19 virus has put an enormous financial burden on families, individuals and of course, those in our community who rely on others’ generosity. Why don’t you dig deep today and give? 


We have several at AY About You that we champion, but we want to hear from you. What charities do you support? These are some of the ones you’ve seen us tout in the past including Project Zero, Women’s Own Worth, The Gaines House, Second Chance Youth Ranch, Little Rock Zoo and Junior Achievement. 


What you say? What nonprofit would you like people to consider today to donate?
