Thank you to Beth Kanter, nonprofit technology influencer, for her great blog post, “How Generosity Day is Building Momentum.” It tells how this viral movement got started only a year ago.

Here's where to go if you want to make a Generosity Day participation pledge to say YES to requests for help on February 14. This site does not ask for money.
