Giving Tuesday: Claremont Style

Maybe you didn’t get all your shopping done on Black Friday or Small Business Saturday. Maybe you want to give back to your local community. Then Giving Tuesday is your day tomorrow.

The Claremont Village website highlights a unique way of supporting local charity. Local small businesses have partnered up with non-profits. For every dollar spent in a local store, 10% will go to a charity. For example, if you eat at Walters, they will donate to Claremont Heritage.

Here are just a few local non-profits that I particularly like.

Shoes That Fit

This works a little differently than donating to an organization because  you can actually buy shoes and socks for a specific child. Stop by Some Crust Bakery to chose a child. Buy the right-sized shoes (socks are also needed) and return them to Some Crust. Happy child!

Claremont Educational Foundation

I particularly like this organization which supports every CUSD school. The elementary schools are supported with money for music and art – near and dear to my heart.

Uncommon Good

I blogged about Uncommon Good, a organization that is concerned with education and the environment.

Of course, these charitable organizations can use your support any day of the year. If you miss Giving Tuesday, make a donation to your favorite causes whenever you can.
