The most impactful gift one can give this holiday season is that of giving.

Join me this year in doing what we can to lend a helping hand to those going through tough times. Whether is it one dollar or a million or anything in between I encourage you to explore these recommended organizations, or any that speak to your heart, and help the cause. Our assistance can be more than financial in the form of time or through raising awareness by sharing with your friends, family and spheres of influence no matter how large or small. EVERY prayer, dollar, hour or share helps organizations founded to assist those in need.
