On Wednesdays we donate to great causes. Starting this week I will be featuring my favorite organizations to give to weekly. These are organizations that are doing work I believe in. June has been a month of social shake up and wake up, and we really needed it! There are so many causes worth fighting for, but the organizations leading the charge can’t do it alone. So give your money, give your time or give your skills.
If you have a favorite organization you want featured, drop me a line through my Contact Me section!
