'Giving Tuesday' 🎗 29th November

"It's not how much we give, but how much love we put into giving." -

Mother Teresa

“We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give." - Winston Churchill

Here is a music and picture quiz for your enjoyment which helps celebrate 'Giving Tuesday' on 29th November.
