National Give Something Away Day


Date When Celebrated : This holiday is always held on July 15

Be a Giver! Today is National Give Something Away Day. Today is definitely not a day for Pack Rats. It is a selfless day. It encourages us to help others and brighten up their day through the simple act of giving.

It's far better to give than to receive. You can consider this to be the theme for this very kind and giving day. On National Give Something Away Day, let's all take the time to take a look at the many things we have, with an eye towards giving things away to family, friends, or those in need.


Today is  perfect day to de-clutter. Clean out a closet, or drawer. Look around your attic, basement, garage, and shed for things you just don't use or need anymore. If you haven't seen or used an item in over a year, chances are you'll never need it again and certainly won't miss it. Now, think about who could use the things you plan on giving away.... no junk please. It's important that the items are in good condition and will be appreciated by the recipient.  


In addition to giving away things you no longer want or need, you can also participate in this day by volunteering your time to an important cause. In this case, you're giving away your precious, invaluable time.


As you participate in this day, you will feel good about what you're doing. And, your house will be less cluttered!

The History and Origin of National Give Something Away  Day:

This special day was created on July 15, 2015 by Linda Eaton Hall-Fulcher, a self proclaimed giver. The objective of this day is to brighten up someone's life by giving them something you no longer need, that they could use.

This is not a true "National" day. Neither the U.S. Congress, nor the President of the United States has proclaimed today National Give Away Something Day.
