Home 9 +Good Newsletter 9 We’re grateful for hobbies

This week, we are thankful for…hobbies. One of our team members is learning to knit. Another loves hiking. And one went alllll the way down the sourdough rabbit hole mid-pandemic. Here at Swell+Good, we are decidedly pro-hobby. We love doing things that serve no material purpose other than to bring us joy. (Honestly, the best goal.) And we love trying something new—even (especially) when we’re total beginners. It’s a great way to learn to be bad at things—and a great way to laugh at ourselves. So this week, we’re grateful for our hobbies—and we’d love to hear about yours! Reply to this post letting us know what fun, silly, joy-bringing thing you’re into right now!

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...
