giving tuesday

‪#‎GivingTuesday‬, it is a global day dedicated to giving back. People everywhere are invited to be part of the giving chain where giving to something you care about can inspire millions of others to give as well.

If you are looking for a great cause to donate to this year… I wanted to share some of my favorites with you!

First up, Place of Hope.

They provide emergency shelter; family-style foster care; family outreach and intervention; maternity care; safety for domestic minor sexually trafficked victims; transitional housing and support services; traditional foster care and adoption recruitment and support; hope, and healing opportunities for children (and families) who have been traumatized by abuse and neglect throughout our region. The list goes on. This organization is amazing and is truly changing lives everyday.

Next, my dear friends in Haiti at Wholehearted Orphanage.

And I am sure there are so many other great places out there (feel free to leave a comment with your favorite charity).

We spend so much time thinking about ourselves and our own family…  what we want this time of year… let’s make it about something bigger than that!

Hope you are enjoying this Holiday season as much as I am!
