One holiday that should not go unnoticed in November is Giving Tuesday! This holiday has been celebrated every Tuesday after Thanksgiving since 2012. It is a whole day dedicated to supporting local and global nonprofits through charitable actions.
Giving back is very important for us here in OMG Austin. That is why in honor of Giving Tuesday, we want to share with you five ways to give back and highlight some fantastic nonprofits who need your support.
Five ways to give back
Nonprofits need your support not just on Giving Tuesday but the whole year. They need funds and volunteers to continue to provide their services or goods to those in need. Here are five ways you can give back to nonprofits all year long.
You can give support by finding a nonprofit. It can be a local or global organization that focuses on a cause you care about.
You can give your time by volunteering or attending a nonprofit’s event. These organizations hold in-person or virtual events that help them raise awareness and money.
You can give money by making a donation or helping raise money. For example, you can create a donation station at your workplace to help raise money for a nonprofit.
Give your skills
You can give your skills by volunteering. Whether your skill is lifting heavy items or organizing an event, nonprofits are always looking for talented volunteers.
You can give voice to a nonprofit by sharing its message. It can be as simple as reposting one of their social media posts on your Facebook or Instagram story.
How OMG Austin gives back
As a faith-based creative management firm, giving back to our communities is a part of who we are. We have the honor to work with various nonprofit organizations across the country. Our support is shown by attending virtual or in-person events, donating, going to Galas, board meetings and more. On this Giving Tuesday, we want to highlight some of these nonprofits we work with and how you can also support them.

Service Dogs, Inc.
A companion who is making a difference in someone’s life. Service Dogs, Inc., located in Dripping Springs, Texas, provides those with mental and physical disabilities the ability to get their life-saving companion. Founded in 1988, this organization provides trained service dogs for the following:
Deaf or hard of hearing
Victims of trauma
First responder mental health
The dogs that come to Service Dogs are from shelters and rescues in the local area who are then trained to help their humans! These dogs go through rigorous training through the Assistance Dogs International Program.
While these companions are not up for adoption per se, anyone can “adopt” a service to help these dogs before they start their training. You can help pay for spay or neuter, shots, or other options.
There are plenty of ways to volunteer as well! Check out their volunteer page.
