It is a day when you can make a big impact on helping students to achieve their educational and career goals by emphasizing the whole person and providing personalized attention within a liberal arts higher educational environment.
Give small – please consider donating $10 to your college and alma mater, Ursuline College. Donate here.
Giving back is a way of life for me. Many think that giving can only be accomplished with money. This is simply not true. Giving can come in the form of money however; there are so many more ways to give. We can give of our time; time to listen to someone with a heavy heart, time to pray for others, time to cook a meal for someone. We can give of our talent; write a letter to a loved one for someone, mend someone’s favorite garment, repair a broken chair.
One of the seven learning outcomes for the Ursuline Studies Program, the core curriculum at Ursuline College, is “Take Responsibility for Society.” I believe in giving back to programs that support this learning outcome; UC Volunteer Day (Cleveland Foodbank, Habitat for Humanity), Walk for Water (building wells in a third-world country), St. Jude Children’s Research, Leukemia/Lymphoma Society, United Way and the UC Annual Fund.
Most of all giving must come from the heart! Do a heart check on this #GivingTuesday and give accordingly!
