Around our office this time of year, we’re all pretty focused on

We believe gratitude and giving should extend beyond Thanksgiving, and many others agree. On the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, people around the world give back. On Giving Tuesday, people can give back to causes that are important to them and make a difference in their community.The event was created several years ago at the 92nd Street YMCA in New York by the folks of the Belfer Center for Innovation & Social Impact, with the aim of bringing people together to give back. From there, it’s grown and spread all around the globe, and every year on that Tuesday, people get in on giving back. With the end of the year approaching, you’re likely thinking about making your last charitable contributions. Even with changes to the tax laws, charitable contributions are still a viable way to give back. Giving Tuesday might be the time to pick the causes you’re passionate about and donate. We could all use some extra support once in a while, right? This could be in the form of volunteering or donating to a charitable organization. We have a food pantry just a couple miles away from us, and they have a pretty heavy need this time of year. We’re excited to be part of the cause and lend a helping hand in our community.

gratitude with the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. Of course, we’re looking forward to the turkey and pumpkin pie, but that’s not really what it’s about, is it? Whether it’s writing down something you feel grateful for or calling up an old friend to tell them how much you appreciate them, now is the time to reflect on everything we have in our lives.There are also a few events surrounding the day that remind us of gratitude and giving back. We feel very thankful for all of it — our family, our friends, and our clients. We work with an amazing group of people. First of all, we’re so glad you’re in our lives. Our greatest reward is working with you and building the trust that’s so important in every relationship. Thank you for supporting our mission to enable individuals and businesses to manage financial risk. We love working with you. As a family-run business, we see the value of family every day and know that the work we do makes what you do possible. We’re also grateful for our own family members who are there for us and keep us motivated.

Small Business Saturday also takes place after Thanksgiving, and it’s a good way to get some early Christmas shopping done while supporting local businesses. Inside the newsletter, we share a bit more about the event. We recognize that Thanksgiving isn’t the only holiday this month. Veterans Day is a special day to thank those who served in the military. Many businesses participate in discounts for veterans and thank them for their service. It’s always good to acknowledge our veterans, but on this day especially, we want to remember what they’ve given.We are grateful for them and the honor to work with folks who have served.To all the veterans out there, thank you for your service. We hope you have a wonderful time with your family this month and that you have some time to reflect on what you’re grateful for. Enjoy the special time with your loved ones.
