A Gifting Tuesday

It’s not everyday that a major international celebration coincides with a global giving event. But here we are–Cinco de Mayo and #GivingTuesday, joined together in a unifying day of hope and, hopefully, change. Spare change, that is. 

For the price of a marguerita at a major chain restaurant, we can provide a family with three days’ worth of groceries. That’s not bad. Why not have one for the road? We’ll serve two families!

To get you in that #GivingTuesday mood, here are some fun and completely factually inaccurate statements about Cinco de Mayo:

-Actor Robert De Niro considered changing his name to Roberto Dinero before auditioning for the title role in ‘Scarface.’ He reconsidered after reading the script.

-American author John dos Passos did change his original name. He was named John dos Pesos at birth. (That is entirely untrue. He was actually christened ‘John Hey It Would Be Amazing if You Donated Six Bucks to NNEMAP Today.’

-Cinco de Mayo was not celebrated for decades. After France’s dismal showing in the two World Wars, Mexico did not want to sound like a bully for routing the French Empire in 1862.
