…Give Back

Christmas ShippingHappy Christmas Eve Eve Eve! With just a few more days till Christmas, we’ve passed crunch time and moved on to full panic mode. Still, as long as you’re still marking items off that to do list, and there are still a few hours to go, there’s hope.As you run around your local malls and shopping centers, and figure out how much it would cost to have an Amazon drone express ship that last gift to your grandparents’ house, I’d like to take just a moment of your time.

This season is all about giving, and not just giving gifts, but giving thanks. It’s been a rough year. There’s been a lot of division, and a lot of people are looking for a way to feel positive about the future.

Maybe this year, consider spending a little extra money this year by donating to a charity or other worthy cause. You could even use it as a gift for that difficult someone on your list who said they don’t want anything.

While it won’t fix all our problems, it’s a good first step.

There are plenty of worthy causes, but if you’re looking for some inspiration, here are a few good places to start…

St. Jude

Heifer International

UNICEF USA
