HAVE A LAUGH!
WONDERFUL CHARITIES TO SUPPORT DURING THE HOLIDAYS 3 Giving back is part of the holiday spirit. As I mentioned in this month’s cover, my family has participated in Operation Christmas Child for as long as I can remember. The project, run by Samaritan’s Purse, is just one of the many awesome ways to support a great cause during the holiday season. Here are a few more incredible causes to consider donating to this year. COMPASSION INTERNATIONAL Sponsoring children through Compassion International helps eliminate child poverty across the world. The organization is dedicated to “helping children of all faiths, cultures, backgrounds, and races” escape poverty and have a brighter future. I can tell you from personal experience that Compassion International is a fantastic charity, and providing aid to a child is an experience unlike any other. You can go to compassion.com to learn more and find a child to support. ST. VINCENT DE PAUL I’ve known about the Society of St. Vincent de Paul (SVdP) for a long time, but it was a member of our Client Advisory Board who let me know just how special the organization is. This person had been homeless and knew countless others in the same predicament. They told me that of all the charities fighting poverty and homelessness in our area, SVdP had helped them the most. Since hearing their stories, supporting this wonderful organization has been a priority for our firm. DARE TO CARE FOOD BANK Dare to Care Food Bank provides over 19 million meals per year to hungry families in Kentucky and Indiana. The charity was founded with the mission “to lead our community to feed the hungry and conquer the cycle of need.” They’re particularly busy during the holidays and need all the volunteers they can get. You can also donate food or money to Dare to Care or organize a food drive in your area to benefit the organization. Check out daretocare.org to find out how. These are just a few of the many charities doing inspiring work in our community and beyond. This year, if you have a little extra time or money to spare, please consider giving back to somebody in need. I promise you won’t regret it.
