We have a day for giving thanks (Thanksgiving) and two for getting deals (Black Friday and Cyber Monday), and then today, Tuesday, December 2, 2014 is #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back.

It’s a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give something more. So add a halo to your profile with a $10 donation to NaNoWriMo or buy your winner's shirt in the NaNoWriMo store.

Then if you wish, tell everyone you can about how you are giving. Be a part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity.

Staff Appreciation Day is on Monday the 24th
It's been a tough year for the staff, and the ML team thought they too could use some love. So tell the staff how much you appreciate all they do for all of us, or how much NaNoWriMo means to you.

To keep all the messages centralized, so the staff won't have to visit every regional forum, one thank you thread will be posted in the "All-Ages Coffeehouse" and one in the "Site & Message Board Feedback & Suggestions".

We will also be using the hashtag #nanostaffrules on Twitter tomorrow. If we work together, we can give the staff a day to remember.

I often get asked, "Can I start a thread for _____ in the forum?" The answer is "Yes, you can create threads in the forum!" I also get asked, "Will you start a thread for _____?" I usually answer, "You can start that one." This is our forum. So if you have something to share, create a thread for that category of thing, such as dares (thank you, Bahnree), celebrations and commiserations (from the ML forums), impromptu write-ins (suggested by Fenderboarder), and so on.

From @NaNoWriMo via Twitter at 10:30 a.m. November 7 regarding #DoubleUpDay:
Our goal? $60K. You laughed. So we made it $75K. You scoffed. Then, $90K. Pah! you said. Then $100K. YOU CRUSHED IT. Final total: $110,248.

Florence Write-in for Sunday, November 9 (today)
I am sorry to say that I am unable to drive to Florence. I have unwillingly caught a nasty cold. With many apologies, I am going to be very selfish and keep all of the germs to myself. I hope that you will forgive me. I will, however, be online for much of the day unless I'm napping. May you stay healthy!

If you are not receiving these and do want them, then make sure the Regional News box has a checkmark inside it.
