Over the holiday season, like most of you I encounter lots and lots of opportunities for giving
. Sometimes there are so many that I just don't know who or what or where to give. I'm always asking people who they give to and what the organization does. There was one really great one I heard about recently. It isn't an organization that has a website or a place to contribute, but I thought it was a great idea. A group of women get together, pool their money and make gift baskets for single moms. The baskets are full of pampering things that the moms would probably never buy for themselves because they are too busy or do not have enough after scrimping and saving for presents for their children. I thought it was a great idea. One of the best I had heard of in awhile.
Today, because there is still time left to make a difference, I want you to list the places or organizations or ideas you have heard about. A link would also be great. I know this isn't the typical mindless Your Turn I normally provide, but I figure once a year we can turn our attention to something that actually makes a difference. Next week though, I promise to get back to the trivial. I actually have one in mind that is quite possibly the most trivial one ever. All it will require is a two word answer, but affects each of you everyday. Intrigued? Well, that is next week. This week tell me who your favorite charities are.
