#GivingTuesday has arrived!
Now that you've weathered Black Friday and Cyber Monday, I invite you to join my family in participating in today's festivities. #GivingTuesday doesn't involve busy parking lots or jam-packed department stores. In fact, with a few moments on your computer or phone, you can celebrate this holiday by giving to the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston--my family's favorite destination.
For decades, three generations of my family have cherished the Museum. My mother started attending the Glassell School of Art in 1980 and still creates wonderful works of art today. Years later, it was the moment I spied my husband's MFAH membership card when I knew he was the one. I remember the day my oldest daughter, Sophia, took her sister's advice on the perfect first-date location--where else but the Museum?
As a family, all three generations are taking part in #GivingTuesday today. Donate now to help ensure that generations to come will continue to enjoy the Museum.
Daughter, wife, and mother of MFAH fans
