Charities To Support This Giving Tuesday
Giving Tuesday offers a rallying point for donors to align their values with organizations that help them overcome feelings of powerlessness.
When you take the initiative to give to a charity that is supporting humanity in some way, you are making yourself a part of that good cause. You are making the world a better place by using your blessing to create another in someone else’s life.
We all strive to make the world a better place and search for our part in doing so. Charities offer you that opportunity.
We have put together a list of charities to support this Giving Tuesday, most of these we are currently working with and a few of them are organizations some of our staff currently supports.
