It's time for one of my favorite days of the year...Giving Tuesday!
It's become an international movement that connects the world with a day of Giving Back. So of course I love it.
Are you familiar with Giving Tuesday? Do you want to find out more about it? In this week's vlog, I share all the ways that you can prepare for this upcoming Giving Tuesday. I hope that you will find the information helpful. I had a really great time recording the vlog...I LOVE talking about Gi
The new vlog is up and it's all about Self Care. You know that thing that we always seem to forget about as caregivers? Taking a moment for self to refill our cup so that we can continue to pour from it and do our part to help make the world a better place. In the vlog, I give you 5 self care ideas that I hope that you will indulge in over the next few weeks. Volunteering ramps up over the holidays, so now is the best time to recharge via self care. As always, if you do take
I am a huge proponent for consistent Blood Donation. It’s something that I feel strongly about and I share with people every chance that I get. I want to share a little something with you...if you are a blood donor, you are literally helping to save a life and in my eyes you are a hero, a champion, a protector and a warrior. Basically, you are a badass. We walk through this life just trying to survive from day to day but it’s the moments when we stop thinking of ourselves and
Do you currently have a volunteer in your life? Someone who sees that they can make a difference in the world. Someone who gives from their heart on a daily basis. Someone who knows that working together to fight hunger, protect the environment and the like is the only way that we can truly bring about change. If you do, hold onto to them, because these are the people who bring light into this world. Finding someone to date and share your life with is not always simple. Like
Everyday I see some injustice in the world; people without a place to call home or enough food to eat, the environment being taken for granted, etc. I know that I’m not alone in this. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed by it all and to think that you don’t have the power to do anything about it. Let me introduce you to the very thing that will change your mind: Volunteering. You’re probably saying to yourself, well that can’t be all there is to it Gail. But it is. I steadfastly be
Do you ever just think about all the ways that your life has made the world a better place? If you haven’t, I recommend that you do so. It’s not a moment based in ego but instead a reminder of the power you have to change the world and the reminder that you are already doing it. I had the opportunity to go on a road trip with my mom over the holiday weekend. There’s a wonderful energy that road trips provide. They allow you to really live in the moment and connect with the pe
Last Saturday I met one of my closest friends and her family for brunch. As is want to happen in New York, the subways were delayed and it would have taken me quite a long time to get there, so I opted to call a Lyft. As soon as I got in the car my driver started a conversation about his life. He mentioned that he had so many good intentions but it was hard to have discipline. He specifically wanted to be more consistent with how he saved money. He had it coming in but spent
I started Giving Back with Gail two years ago and I had no idea where it would go. You see I just kept getting this pull to create a community that worked together to change the world and inspire others to do the same. I had no idea if it would resonate with people or not. I just created the page and posted in earnest every single day. Before long, a organic community emerged that became so much more than I ever could have imagined. Living a life of purpose is exhilarating, s
