Thank AM, we are excited about the future Gem Village and know Giving Tuesday is a big part of this amazing project. You always wanted a building named after Bucketfilling Fairy! Now you can! Check it out here: thegemfoundation.com

This is wonderful, Tiffany Zook ! I’m so amazed by all you’ve done for the Gem Foundation over the years!

I love the reminder that it's better to GIVE than RECEIVE! We support organizations financially but also get elbow deep in helping where there is need.

Yes, Katie Sloan ! I love talking to my kids about giving, especially during the holidays. And both types of giving are so helpful- just because someone can't give financially, doesn't mean they can't GIVE!

We all can make a difference when we give. Did you know that at thegemfoundation.com , home for special needs orphans, $1 buys 4 meals??? And it’s all fresh produce !!! Every dollar counts! Give big or give small, a tribe of givers can make a huge impact.
