Happy Giving Tuesday everyone! If you're looking for a worth charity to donate to today, we have a few suggestions for you:
CurlyRed has had the great privilege of providing services for many several fantastic non-profits that would greatly benefit from your donation today. These include The Community Crisis Center, Zion Project, and Business Volunteers Unlimited, just to name a few.
But we also wanted to shine a light on two incredible organizations. This year, our family is “gifting” our girls with adopting a little girl named Laurence through Compassion International. They are “the world’s leading authority in holistic child development through sponsorship.
Holistic child development means they begin, in some cases, with prenatal care and go all the way through leadership development for qualified young adults. It means they take a long-term approach to what they do and go beyond simple involvement in the lives of the children and families they serve.”
For a small monthly fee, we will be helping this young girl get what she needs to thrive. And we are hoping our girls will be inspired to also send letters, pictures and well wishes all year long!
Another organization that's doing great things is World Relief. “World Relief's mission is to empower the local church to serve the most vulnerable. With initiatives that focus on disaster response, health and child development, refugee and immigration services, economic development and peace-building, they work holistically with the local church to stand for the sick, the widowed, the orphaned, the alienated, the displaced, the devastated, the marginalized and the disenfranchised.”
World Relief does this awesome thing every holiday season called the “Give Hope Shop.” You can select “gifts” to donate under the names of family and friends, that go directly to those in need. So much better than a gift card, don't you think?
We encourage you to join us in the act of giving today, and through this entire holiday season long. Grace and peace!
