Is it too soon to think about the holidays? It might feel like it. After all, kids just went back to school and the Halloween decorations are just now hitting the aisles of Target. But it won’t be long before Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, the New Year and more are upon us. In fact, ongoing shipping delays already have the media and stores urging early ordering.
And if the time is now to make your holiday shopping spreadsheet (just me?), then it’s also time for you to start brainstorming your holiday/end-of-year giving plan.
The fall is a great time to research local organizations and groups. Many, like RJLF, are hosting fall events (in-person or virtual) that will allow you to meet, learn and get a better feel for the cause. They’re also preparing end-of-year fundraising drives. At RJLF, we’ll be participating in Giving Tuesday and launching an annual gift drive to help our Fellows and their families have a happy holiday.
Knowing what’s out there and who’s in need will allow you to enter the holiday season ready to spread cheer.
