Consider this your virtual high five.

You made it through Giving Tuesday! Congratulations!

While the rest of the world gets overwhelmed by inbox traffic and social media posts (and hopefully feels super inspired to give, too!), we know that that you are hustling. Giving Tuesday is no joke for rockstar nonprofit folks like you. We see you. We’re proud of you. And no matter what your outcomes are so far, you did the thing — and that deserves celebrating.

Speaking of celebrating — we should all do more of it, don’t you think? So here’s your challenge today: celebrate something or someone. Tell a colleague why you appreciate her. Write a thank you note. Take a moment to acknowledge something you’re proud of.

Celebration matters.

And this week, we’re celebrating you.
