We know that giving generously is ingrained in carers – it’s part of your fabric.

Our family of foster and kinship carers is made up of people for whom giving is just how they organise each day: giving their time, efforts, love, care, attention and kindness to those closest to them - and those who need their assistance.

So when Life Without Barriers was approached to endorse Giving Tuesday, our carers immediately came to mind as a cohort who would know exactly what this amazing movement is trying to achieve.

Giving Tuesday is an international day which started in the USA in 2012. It celebrates and supports ‘giving’ as a way to engage with community and become part of an open international movement that promotes generosity.

Life Without Barriers is supporting Australia’s efforts for a 'Day of Giving’ on Tuesday December 1 2020.

Individuals can offer financial and other types of support (food, time, their voice, membership, goods etc) through a drop-down menu on the Giving Tuesday website. It is a simple way to choose how you’d like to give, and whom you’d like to give to – it provides geographic listings to a number of NGOs and charities seeking assistance. So on Tuesday, December 1, have a think about what you’d like to do to show how the world can be a more generous place, and share it with your networks.
