Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I understand that it's history is messy and wrong, however I hope that it is, if nothing else, a forcing function for people to be kind to one another and reflect about the year. I am so grateful for my wonderful husband, Reese, our dogs, Nala and Islay, our families, our friends, our home. I also shamelessly love the food.
However, this year I've been especially reflective. There's a lot that's up in the air right now in American politics and the state of the world. And we can't afford to leave it up to people that don't care about the citizens that create our great nation.
So this year I'm particularly grateful that my husband and I have jobs that afford us the ability to give back to those that have been or will be directly impacted by the political ecosystem that has been created. And if you can afford it, I urge you to do the same. No amount is too small. People around this country are fighting for their rights and need our help.
Here are the great organizations that we donated to:
More than ever, it's important to vote with your dollar. Support the people and organizations you care so they can keep doing great things.
Your participation can make change possible.
