christmas is always a wonderful time to serve and give to others. in the spirit of christmas, we thought it’d be great to work with a charity and give to a specific cause we’re passionate about. after a little research this christmas season, josh and i have chosen to give to save the children. their stories and mission really touched us, especially as new parents, and we hope our contribution can make a real impact in the lives of a few children and their families.
when we think about it, there seems to be both immediate concerns like basic needs and emergency relief and also things we can do now to make a future impact. in addition to helping with immediate needs, we like the idea of donating something towards education because it seems to have the ability to provide real change and bring about good in the lives of children around the world. these are the things we want to focus on, and save the children tries to help with all of these.
why are we even talking about this? because we’ve had such great experiences with giving that we’d love to encourage you to donate as well! if not to this charity, then perhaps to another one. and if people can’t donate, they can try volunteering. we really love hearing what other charities people are passionate about. what are some of the charities you donate to or volunteer your time for?
