#GivingTuesday

Ellen Tailor Birthday

We know about #BlackFriday, #SmallBusinessSaturday, and #CyberMonday. But today, #GivingTuesday, is about giving money and time to others as opposed to retailers. Random acts of kindness, food drives, donating blood, time, or even money all count! Last year $117 million smackaroos was raised worldwide. So the question is: Where will YOU donate?

I’m pledging money to the GScruggs Scholarship benefitting Boys Hope Girls Hope, the organization that helped shapeΒ a man who’s brought so much to those around him, one of my nearest and dearest friends, Greg Scruggs. Many of you probably remember him as a seventh round draft pick of the Seattle Seahawks. He was part of the “failing” draft class in 2012 that would ultimately bring us a Super Bowl championship to the Great Northwest.

2012 @seahawks class at Super Bowl 49! & they gave us a F Grade.. Back to Back Super Bowls! #MakeThemNotice #HowBoutNow

Greg’s a proud alumnaeΒ of Boys Hope Girls Hope, currently serves as their International Spokesperson, and is constantly giving back to the people that helped him. Reading his story makes me thankful because without BHGH, I wouldn’t have such a great inspiration in my own life. From silly country car sing-a-longs…

To our “Beauty & The Champ” podcast and that time he tried to do my makeup…

To the countless of hours just chatting about life and world domination. If it weren’t for the donations and kindness of those who supported Boys Hope Girls Hope in the past, we wouldn’t be blessed to have someone like Greg in this world. I’m gladly opening my pocketbook to support the Greg Scruggs Scholarship andΒ Greg is personally matching every dollar donated this #GivingTuesday.

If you’re so inclined, make your donation to the Greg Scruggs Scholarship hereΒ and please share this post. Thank you! πŸ™‚
