The holiday season evokes feelings of gratitude, and an appreciation for all of the blessings we are so lucky to have in our lives. Although we should strive to give back to those in need all year long, this is the perfect time of year to help those in our communities who are less fortunate. There is no better gift than the gift of giving back, and no better way to teach our children about the spirit of giving then getting them involved in charitable activities at a young age.
With this in mind, the staff of A Baby Step Adoption is introducing ABSA Thankful Thursdays, an initiative to give back to the local communities where we live and work every day. We hope our efforts inspire others to get involved!
A Baby Step Adoption staff members will be working with the following organizations this holiday season, and need your help! Here is how you can get involved:
1. Help us spread the word about Thankful Thursdays!
Between now and New Year's Eve, use #absathankfulthursdays on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter and tell us what you are thankful for this holiday season. For every 100 posts using this hashtag, A Baby Step Adoption will donate $100 to one of our 6 Thankful Thursday charities. Let’s make it to 600 posts (or more!) so that all 6 of these well deserving organizations can benefit!
2. Make a donation to one of these great, local organizations. Here’s how:
We will be collecting desperately needed items for the following 6 organizations to be delivered on the 6 Thursdays between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Eve. We welcome you to contribute to all or whichever ones mean the most to you! If you live outside of the Philadelphia area, but would like to contribute, we will also be collecting monetary donations. Simply reach out to the ABSA contact listed below the organization you would like to donate to, and they will provide you with instructions.
