A last minute pitch for #givingtuesday

…a chance to thank all the local charities for working so hard to make out lives happier and healthier.

….and also a chance for a further reminder that Jamie Hepburn MSP and I, and some of our staff team, are raising money for two great local charities this weekend, by doing the Cumbernauld 5k. More details here about how to support us: https://www.justgiving.com/…/Cumbernauld5kChristmasCrackerC…

#givingtuesday was started in the U.S as a campaign to allow people to give something back after the mad shopping of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It was brought to the UK three years ago by the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF). Last year it raised £6,000 a minute for UK charities and broke the world record for the most amount of money donated online to charity in 24 hours.
