In the midst of all of the sales, the pretty decor, the hustle and bustle of trying to find the perfect gift; there is this: the true spirit of the holidays. There are many who are less fortunate, many who are fighting for their health and many who would be thankful for even the smallest gesture of love and support.
This year Kirby and I are gifting some of the money we've earned through our blog to support a couple of organizations who need it way more than we do.
Here are a few of our favorite places to give:
St. Baldrick's Foundation - A volunteer driven charity dedicated to funding the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers.
The Association to Benefit Children - ABC was created to amplify the voices of defenseless children by combating poverty and championing the right of every child to a joyful childhood.
Animal Protection and Rescue League - Promotes the compassionate protection of animals by educating about factory farm animals and humane eating.
Homicide Watch - Committed to documenting and recording every homicide from crime to conviction in an effort to understand and combat violent crime in our neighborhoods. (Washington D.C., Chicago).
Grassroot Soccer - Uses the power of a popular sport to educate and inspire communities to stop the spread of HIV.
