The Power of All: Why we SHARE

As the saying goes, sharing is caring.
 
On Giving Tuesday, sharing is something everyone can do to participate – even if you’re not active on social media.
 
While posting and following and liking on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram about all the good happening on Dec. 1 is highly encouraged, sharing also means giving gifts, giving our time and giving pieces of ourselves. It’s all important on Giving Tuesday.

The Power of All: Why we DO

We do what we do because of our “why.”
 
In other words, what motivates us is often more than the action itself – it’s the meaning behind it that is the real driver.
 
Having a clear “why” gives you a context for your life and can help you focus how you spend your time. And, your passions in life can help inform how you want to give your time to others. Volunteering can add another layer of purpose to your life, and can help connect you to micro-communities of like-minded people.
 

Where's SHARE is at... RESPECT!

Where's SHARE is an odyssey across the Omaha metro to discover causes that matter, presented by Core Bank. Did you decode this clue?

When they first began, bullying and teen dating violence weren’t discussed,
But two decades later, the education they provide is a must.
 
Their interactive approach with students stages a conversation,
Reaching over half a million participants, their efforts are worthy of your donation!
 
Where’s SHARE? We are RESPECT!
