What does the word "charity" mean to you?  

The true definition of charity is an organization set up to provide help and raise money to those in need. It also means, the voluntary giving of help..something in this day and age we ALL need to do a little more of.

*How can I help?

The two obvious ways to help are to click on the websites and either donate your money or some time. Involve friends, put it out there on your social media. Start a trend! 

We have all become so deprogrammed from being social IN person. Be THAT person to help turn it around and get others involved in your good deed. Grab your kids, your relatives, your co-workers, and help.

 

 

We all can make a difference!
