Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, encouraging people to donate to their desired causes and organizations.

During this holiday season, while shopping for loved ones, you can give financially to Live Well Omaha without spending an extra dime:

  • TAGG – Download the Together A Greater Good app to your smartphone, and use it at over 100 local businesses who will donate 5% back to us! Get the app
  • Amazon Smile – Every time you shop on Amazon by visiting the AmazonSmile homepage first, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to the charitable organizations selected by customers. Set up your account
  • Giving Assistant – It’s so easy to support us while you take care of your every day, online shopping. Just use Giving Assistant! Giving Assistant shoppers earn an average of $700 cash back per year. Then, they choose to donate a percentage of that to causes they’re passionate about, Live Well Omaha. Giving Assistant facilitates the entire process, making it easier than ever to support us just by shopping online at over 3,000+ participating stores including Macy’s, Nordstrom, Groupon, and more.

I utilize all three of these great resources and give to Live Well Omaha because I want every kid to be able to have access to healthy foods and ability be active – no matter who they are or where they live.

Helping all children grow up at a healthy weight is important to Live Well Omaha Kids. Live Well Omaha Kids, under Live Well Omaha’s leadership, has a mission is to work collaboratively to reduce and prevent childhood obesity in Greater Omaha by creating healthy environments for all children and families through advocacy, education, policy development, and environmental change. In my role as Director for Live Well Omaha Kids, I have the honor of working for this cause every day.

This generation is reported to be the first to live shorter lives than their parents, but we can come together to make changes in our community and rewrite this story. All children deserve to be healthy and live up to their full potential.

Please consider supporting Live Well Omaha for #GivingTuesday. You can also make a financial contribution to our organization via Paypal.
