December 2014, a group of ladies gathered for a Christmas cookie exchange. As typical with a baking frenzy, there were way too many cookies and someone declared, “we have enough, let’s share.”
The excess cookies were packaged up and distributed to a low-income, senior living facility in our community.
One good deed quickly turned into another and the group of ladies organized under the name Ding Dong Divas with the intention of giving back to our community by delivering kindness door-to-door.
But, as with all good things, the activities grew from spreading neighborhood cheer to making an impact in our community through monthly giving projects.
In 2016, GIVATION was created to motivate more like-hearted people to join our efforts in active giving.
As a certified 501c3 nonprofit organization, we coordinate people, contributions and energies around a different local charity, community organization or group of people in need every month.
From collecting items, packaging and distributing goodie bags for 6,000 bootcamp soldiers heading home for the holidays to hosting a back to school bash for children in a homeless shelter; from selling plates of BBQ and raising funds for homeless veterans to playing bingo with low-income seniors; from building raised vegetable gardens for an abused women’s shelter to delivering care packages to parents with premies in the NICU, we have helped thousands of people in need of kindness within our community through generous donations and volunteer efforts.
Join us! No dues, no membership fees, no obligations – just good giving.
