Our team wanted to share a holiday greeting and some of their favorite charities. Happy Holidays, and if you can give this year, please do!
One of my first housemates in Washington, DC (CHIRS EVANS) delivered meals every Saturday for them since 1997. He died of a heart attack last month in his home, alone. I think it would mean a lot to him knowing that we support this charity.
An all-around action charity, I strongly support the ACLU mission: “to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed to all people in this country by the Constitution and laws of the United States.”
Mine would be The Battle Buddy Foundation. They train and give service dogs to veterans free of charge.
The Battle Buddy Foundation was founded with the combined mission of assisting veterans, of all eras, in the acquisition of service dogs, while providing a network of peer support and activity, and promoting education and awareness of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), the current veteran suicide epidemic, and the live saving benefits of highly trained service dogs.
I am going with my favorite DC non-profit – Casey Trees – replenishing and rebuilding the Washington tree canopy for decades!
