wreaths

Check out this email from reader, Holly…

For the past 6+ years, I have assisted with Toy Drives for children in foster care, more specifically the Guardian Ad Litem (GAL) program. I will always work with the GAL, but this year I found another organization/company that I feel as passionate about… it’s called Wreaths for Hope.

Charity

When buying a wreath this holiday season, why not choose one that will make a difference in the lives of people with cancer and support our Veterans in need? With your purchase, 20% of the proceeds go to a foundation of your choice (Stand Up To Cancer for instance) and 10% of the proceeds go towards transportation of cancer patients in down east Maine. The short 3 minute video on their website homepage explains the who, what and why about their company/cause.

Do you have a favorite charity? Please share!

    There are so many wonderful charities (and unfortunately far too many where the people running them use the money given to benefit themselves more than to help others, so one needs to be careful when donating.) But to mention just a few: Smile Train (which helps children born with cleft lips and palates), Fisher House (which helps provide lodging for veterans and military families receiving treatment at military medical centers), Compassion International, a humanitarian aid agency helping children in poverty.

    Love 146 helping children who have been sexually trafficked and exploited…it’s a harrowing thing but it’s real and these children need rescued and rehabilitation . They do great work and give lots of updates, please check them out!!!

    For the past 3 years I have volunteered with Paws for Life Rescue (www.pawsforliferescue.org), a nonprofit in Michigan dedicated to homeless animals. It is entirely volunteer staffed and 100% of donations go to the cats and dogs in our care until they are adopted into forever families. This year we partnered with Picaboo on a holiday card program and 50% of your holiday card order placed thru the link below will go to Paws for Life. It is a great way to purchase a custom photo card to send family and friends and, in the process help homeless animals that need your support. . There are 2 styles to choose from. There is more information at the link (be sure to use the photo editing features to lighten photos and add features and custom text).
    Order at https://www.picaboo.com/non-profit- holiday-cards/paws- for-life/
    Use promo code ‘NPOCARDS’ to get 50% off
    Thanks!

    I always donate to Postpartum Progress (www.postpartumprogress.com) which helps provide information & help for pregnant and new moms dealing with mood disorders. I had severe postpartum depression after my first child was born & they were a tremendous resource for me. I also donate to Our Promise to Nicholas (ourpromisetonicholas.com) which was founded by a college friend who lost her son to Batten Disease, a rare congenital neurological condition that has no found treatment or cure.

    I love Special Spaces. They make dream makeover bedrooms for children with terminal illnesses. They are in several locations around the country. I have been involved with the chapter in Chattanooga for the last several years. It has been a wonderful opportunity to do something for people who are going through a really rough time!

    ZOE
    http://www.zoehelps.org
    This organization is helping 28,000 orphaned and vulnerable children in Africa, India, and Guatemala. ZOE goes into communities where the orphans are already living, and brings them together in supportive groups. The innovative 3-year program works to empower the children and lift them out of poverty so that they never need charity again. I had the opportunity to visit several of the groups in Kenya this past summer and the work that ZOE does is remarkable, effective, and very different from any other charitable organization that I have seen.

    Sew For Kids is a charitable sewing group that welcomes people of all skill levels and crafts to join us as we provide clothing and other needs for the children of Pine Ridge and Yankton Sioux reservations in South Dakota. Non crafters are welcome too and can help the group immensely by sharing your ideas with us, lending support and helping provide those items that can’t be crafted such as school supplies.

    Fisher House Foundation is best known for a network of comfort homes where military and veterans’ families can stay at no cost while a loved one is receiving treatment.

    These homes are located at major military and VA medical centers nationwide, close to the medical center or hospital they serve. Fisher Houses have up to 21 suites, with private bedrooms and baths. Families share a common kitchen, laundry facilities, a warm dining room and an inviting living room. Fisher House Foundation ensures that there is never a lodging fee. Since inception, the program has saved military and veterans’ families an estimated $320 million in out of pocket costs for lodging and transportation.

    Fisher House Foundation also operates the Hero Miles program, using donated frequent flyer miles to bring family members to the bedside of injured service members as well as the Hotels for Heroes program using donated hotel points to allow family members to stay at hotels near medical centers without charge. The Foundation also manages a grant program that supports other military charities and scholarship funds for military children, spouses and children of fallen and disabled veterans.

    Families served: More than 27,000 in 2015
    Daily capacity: 950 families
    Families served: More than 277,000 since inception
    Number of lodging days offered: Over 7 million
    7,000 students have received $11,000,000 in scholarship awards
    Over 63,000 airline tickets provided by Hero Miles to service members and their families, worth nearly $100 million

    PAWS Chicago!
    It is a no-kill animal shelter. I’ve volunteered and interned there as well as hosted a donation drive for them at my current place of employment and had my company donate money to them.

    They care for animals, treat their illnesses, give them vacinations, and let the animals stay there until they get adopted (this includes senior animals who may never get adopted).

    I am the founder of Beauty Bag Angels. Every year I walk next to an Angel Tree or something along those lines and I notice that both the teenagers and older children are typically one of the last few to get picked. What I have started to do is collect makeup bags throughout the year and stuff them with fun goodies. Some items are full size and name brand while others are deluxe sample size items I get in my subscription boxes. I keep a “give away” stash stored in a box that I add to all year. Good sales, sweet freebies, etc. all get collected for women all over the US . I open my email once a year to take Christmas gift requests (nominations for the beauty bags). I am able to send beauty bags to mothers, daughters and little girls who want to feel as beautiful on the outside as they are on the inside. Not everyone can afford make up, hair care items, jewelry, skin care….just the extra items that aren’t really necessary but make us feel a tiny bit better about ourselves. Everyone deserves to feel loved, special, beautiful and appreciated. It has been a dream come true to be able to send a little bag of love to those ladies all over the world who need and deserve a smile. Last year we were able to send out over 150 beauty bags. Fifty bags more than the previous year. This event could not be possible without the help from everyone who donates. We are not funded and I run this amazing organization out of my very own home. I am in need of several more donations because the nominations are soaring in. We couldn’t be happier. If you would like to read more about Beauty Bag Angels please follow the link provided.
