After a day of feasting and giving thanks, two days of finding deals and frantic shopping, it is time to give back.

Giving Tuesday is a global day for gratitude and reflection. We hope to celebrate generosity, give back, and support the organizations making a difference in your community.

This Tuesday, December 1st, I’ve decided to donate to Mercy Health Clinic. This is a non-profit organization that provides quality health care for uninsured, low-income residents of Montgomery County.

As a student taking HLSA300, or Introduction to Health Policy and Services, I understand that there are still many people left uninsured despite the enactment of the Affordable Care Act. And as someone who has spent their entire life in Montgomery County, I truly appreciate the work that Mercy Health Clinic does to help those who can’t afford the health services that they need.

If you’d like to learn more about Mercy Health Clinic, feel free to check out their website:


I hope that you will join me on Giving Tuesday to give back, show some love, and pay it forward.

Which organizations are you going to celebrate today?
