As a young professional woman, I am involved in a number of groups and organizations in my community from serving on boards and committees of non-profits to organizing community service projects for my young professional group to teaching financial literacy classes. Being involved in the community is important to me both personally and professionally. I find that giving back helps to teach us understanding and compassion for others and for me, it’s extremely rewarding.
This month, SHARE Omaha turns two years old! We want you to know, it has been a joy to dedicate these 730+ days to connecting metro supporters throughout eastern Nebraska and Western Iowa to local causes.
On December 1st, the metro showed up in a big way, almost doubling giving from 2019’s Giving Tuesday. (Read the full results, here.) How did this happen, you ask? A key ingredient to this powerful day was overwhelming support from local media: every tv station, radio station, newspaper and more.
