This blog was guest written by Robert Badura, Giving Tuesday intern
I have had a blast working with SHARE Omaha as their Giving Tuesday Intern this past semester, learning valuable skills and working towards strengthening my community through positive work. This was my first Giving Tuesday, and I am glad that I was able to spend it highlighting the meaning of generosity and what it means to give back.
I spent the day, bracing the weather, at the University of Nebraska at Omaha talking with my peers about SHARE Omaha and what Giving Tuesday is all about, sharing the powerful stories of the non-profits impacted by the generosity of our community.
It can be tough for college students to donate money but as I have learned and have shared with others, generosity can be more than just a monetary donation. I talked with my peers about donating our time and energy to support our communities in various ways which can be just as impactful as donating money. I believe that I was able to reach many of my peers and educate them on the meaningful work that we do at SHARE Omaha and the goals of Giving Tuesday.
Please enjoy some of the pictures I took on Giving Tuesday of my peers around campus holding our SHARE stickers as well as the fun t-shirt that we partnered with Raygun to create. I was also able to attend an event that the UNO Greek Community was hosting where I was able to pie my roommates; they were excellent sports and even took pictures of our SHARE shirt.
It was a fun time celebrating not only Giving Tuesday but also my community here on campus. I am excited to see the impact of Giving Tuesday and what we can do at SHARE Omaha to continue highlighting and showcasing the stories of our communities.
