Big news! We decided to make the most of sheltering-in-place and used it as an opportunity to upgrade our look and get fancy with our brand. Do you like our new style?

Huge thanks to brilliant designer and creative mastermind, Caitlin Hottinger, who helped us bring our dreams to life. Check out all of her great work here.

What have you tackled during this season that you might have otherwise put off? (And if your answer is “keeping my children alive and semi-educated” or “learning 247 TikTok dances,” that is totally valid. There is no “winning” at this — we’re all just doing our best!)

A lot of our quarantine projects have revolved around organization — both physically and digitally. We’re cleaning out closets and inboxes and desktops like it’s our job — and those tiny achievements feel like we are moving mountains.

So here’s your encouragement for the day: Check one thing off your to-do list. It can be the tiniest thing there. You can even add something to your list just so you can cross it off (we do this A LOT). And then celebrate that victory.

You did it! GO YOU.

Is Giving Tuesday dead?

On the very first Giving Tuesday in 2012, our team went all out. We didn't quite know what we are doing, but we created a command center, borrowed staff from across the organization, and camped out on every single social media platform looking for conversations to...
