Back in 2006, when I was incarcerated at Valley State Prison for Women (VSPW), I had to attend a re-entry class in order to get paroled. One of the assignments in this class was to find ten resources within your county from a resource guide VSPW supplied. Looking for any place to write down, I noticed that Goodwill was listed five different times. I wrote down Goodwill and made a mental note for myself when I paroled.

Occurring this year on Tuesday, November 28, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate on improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support.
