Well, Black Friday and Cyber Monday have come and gone so you know what that means: today is #GivingTuesday! Don’t know where to start? Not to worry, I’ve found some amazing charities and foundations that make a difference in so many people’s lives!
Wreaths Across America
This organization is very near and dear to my heart. I have such a special place in my heart for veterans. We owe them SO MUCH. They deserve to be honored for their sacrifices. Each Christmas season, Wreaths Across America lays wreaths on the graves of fallen soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery. For only $15, you can sponsor a wreath and honor our fallen heroes. My niece, Ellie, is a member of the American Heritage Girls. Every year, her troop raises money for wreaths and the girls also go to the cemetery to help place wreaths. My sister has said that it is such a beautiful experience for the girls as well as the adults. Click here to sponsor a wreath!
American Humane Association
Even though we don’t have any animals at the Huffman Homestead (except for our fish, Darth) we still love our furry friends and want to see them thrive! The Humane Association does so much: from health care to rescue to preparing animals to be service pets, the list goes on and on! To give to a great cause, click here!
Operation Christmas Child
I know I’ve talked about this charity before, but it bears repeating. This is one of my favorite charities to give to! Operation Christmas Child (also referred to as Operation Shoebox) gives presents to children all over the world who have little to nothing. Huff the Hubs and I fill shoeboxes every year and it is such a blessing! You may think filling a shoebox with simple items may not mean much, but take a look at this video and the excitement in the children’s eyes:
Habitat for Humanity
Habitat for Humanity is an awesome organization that does so much for low-income families everywhere! You can donate your time, funds, or resources to help this great cause! Click here to see how YOU can get involved!
