It is never too early to plan your giving year. We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now we have #GivingTuesday™, the giving season’s opening day. On Tuesday December 3, 2013 charities, families, businesses and individuals are coming together to transform the way people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. The idea for the campaign sprung from Henry Timms, deputy executive director of the Jewish community center 92nd Street Y, and Kathy Calvin, CEO of the United Nations Foundation. New York’s 92nd Street Y has been the catalyst and incubator for #GivingTuesday, bringing the expertise of 139 years of community-management to the project, and providing #GivingTuesday a home. Henry Timms has also been instrumental in producing the annual Social Good Summit, in partnership with Mashable and the UN Foundation, which has opened up the UN Week conversation to over 120,000 across the world. Earlier in his career, Henry oversaw corporate strategy for Arts & Business, one of HRH The Prince of Wales’ charities, and helped to launch the Prince’s Foundation for Children and the Arts.

She offers examples of innovative givers, social entrepreneurs, celebrities, government officials, nonprofit professionals, volunteers and social media networkers who also have a positive impact on society.

In this episode I'll discuss how giving money to charitable causes helps us stay financially healthy. It's a great paradox that the more generous we are, the richer we become both in spirit AND in our bank accounts. I'll talk about the benefits of giving, the barriers to giving, how to get started on your journey to becoming a generous giver. Email me questions you have on tithing, giving, and charities before or during the show! Christine@ChristineLuken.com
When we think about generous giving we automatically think of money. However there are other gifts that have no monetary value and whose value is beyond price. Mary Kaleli and Wangari Siocha will give us tips on generous giving. Listen live at 619-393-2852 or listen live/archived at: http://pinnacleofpraiseshow.com/new/

Co-founded in January 2011 by Ron Sapp, Sharing Spree is a daily deals site that's dedicated to giving back to local non-profits and schools by donating 10-15% of every deal purchased.
By focusing on buying, giving and living locally, Sharing Spree has already donated $337,000+ to non-profits and schools. Now, even those budgeting their disposable incomes can reach out to help their community by going on sharing sprees.
The University of Oregon Alumni Association is an example of the power of the Sharing Spree partnership for non-profits. In just one month, Sharing Spree recently raised $17,500 for the group.
Some other of the charities they support are: American Cancer Society, CASA, Arthritis Foundation, American Diabetes Association, Autism Speaks and Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Ron Sapp graduated from Oregon State University with a bachelor’s degree in biology, and went on to receive his Master of Business Administration with an emphasis in marketing. Throughout his corporate career and business experience, Ron has excelled in sales, sales management, market development, national sales training, and operation of a franchise selling high-end cardiovascular products with sales of more than $10 million.
In 2010, Ron bought into a franchise called MyEZdeal.com, which later became SharingSpree.com. He is now the CEO of SharingSpree.com.
From Buffett to Bono, how today’s leading philanthropists are revolutionizing the field, using new methods to have a vastly greater impact on the world. For philanthropists of the past, charity was often a matter of simply giving money away. For the philanthrocapitalists—the new generation of billionaires who are reshaping the way they give—it’s like business. Largely trained in the corporate world, these “social investors” are using big-business-style strategies and expecting results and accountability to match. Bill Gates, the world’s richest man, is leading the way: he has promised his entire fortune to finding a cure for the diseases that kill millions of children in the poorest countries in the world. In Philanthrocapitalism, Matthew Bishop and Michael Green examine this new movement and its implications. Proceeding from interviews with some of the most powerful people on the planet—including Gates, Bill Clinton, Warren Buffett, Oprah Winfrey, and Bono, among others—they show how a web of wealthy, motivated donors has set out to change the world. Matthew Bishop is the US Business Editor and New York Bureau Chief of The Economist. Before joining The Economist, Mr. Bishop was on the faculty of London Business School, where he co-authored three books for the Oxford University Press on subjects ranging from privatization and regulation to corporate mergers. Prior to that, Mr. Bishop was educated at Oxford University. Matthews websites are: http://www.economist.com/mediadirectory/matthew-bishop http://www.philanthrocapitalism.net/

Join co-hosts Eric Komoroff (www.communityofunity.org) and Dr. Jason Stein (iRyze.com) as they discuss teaching our youth about gift-giving. What does gift-giving mean, how to best give and receive graciously, and how these discussions can be part of learning a bigger lesson will be part of the very on-topic seasonal conversation.
Giving back feels good, it is a selfless notion. Giving back means giving without expecting a reward or recognition. The fulfilling and biggest reward is knowing that you made a difference in some one’s life. Heizal Njuguna will give us tips on giving back.
