  2. Hello. I would like to know more about #giving Tuesday. I however never been on Twitter before.

  3. i love being around and with all kids but especially unpriviledged kids cause i was one of those. i want to help out as many as i can by playing tag cards board dice games hide n seek etc just to bring them joy and peace as they bring me joy just to hear them laughing being happy etc. it just makes me sick to hear and see what lil kids go through growing up like i did, but am very thankful for having a strong faith in god to fight my battles for me.

  4. I’d like to volunteer my copyediting services to help Volunteer Match avoid typos like “Why Should Participate?” in its blog. Please contact me if you are interested in having a second (or third) set of eyes on Volunteer Match blogs, Web sites, manuscripts, or any other copy medium. Thanks for your consideration.

  5. I am currently doing a PhD in Management which requires my contribution to positive social change. I would be honored to be part of giving Tuesday in order to fulfill this component.
