Giving Up To Give: the first baby donor

Today our Giving Up To Give calendar has been filled by a 1 year old. He has generously (with the help of his equally generous mother and father) Given Up the purchase of some new baby toys.

We would ask for him to comment on his Giving Up, but unfortunately his vocabulary is a bit limited. But actions speak louder than words, so let the children lead us.

Thank you Charles! (and say thanks to your mom and dad for us too).

Giving Up a Family Breakfast Out

This morning, Angela and her family Gave Up eating breakfast out. We love how our little Giving Up To Give community is finding lots of ways and places where we can Give Up, and how you are often involving your whole family in the process.

"We gave up a family breakfast out at our favorite place, Flying Biscuit. Its a place we love to go to for "treats" like when school is out and just "because" if we haven't been there in a while. We haven't been in a while and today seemed like a great time to go since my husband was actually home around breakfast time. But why not actually give up this unnecessary "treat" and be able to give the money to support the work of GBA in Africa, enabling someone else to have a "treat"?!"
