Donate! The Season to Give!

While everyone is enjoying shopping for family and friends for the holidays, please don't forget to donate to charity of your choice whether it's putting money in the buckets outside of stores or finding one to donate to. Not only can you donate money you can donate gently used shoes, clothes & toys, toiletries you can even just donate your time! Think of the things you have then think of the many people out there that don't even have a warm place to lay their heads at night or about the single parent struggling just to pay the bills not to mention worrying about how she will get gifts for her children. This world is a tough place to live in when you have a job, think about the people who are out of work struggling to make ends meet. There is always something you can give even if not with money.

Here are some charities to help you get started !

This one is for children who's parents are in jail. These children shouldn't have to for something their parents did.
