It's my birthday today and all eyes are on me, so why not take a minute to highlight a few of my favorite charities? I encourage you (gently) to make a donation or perhaps volunteer in honor of my special day. Do your own Be Better Birthday. Or do it just because it makes you better, therefore making others who observe you better. Any reason is fine, pick one and do it, today. (Please?) Charity Water - you will be blown away by how cheap it is to buy clean water. www.charitywater.org Specifically, I'd like to help my friend Erica meet her goal: http://bit.ly/ericah2o
Jenny's Light - Their goal is to improve & save lives by increasing awareness about postpartum depression. Read the stories. www.jennyslight.org
Open Arms Minnesota - We take food and its abundance for granted. Open Arms' clients do not. www.openarmsmn.org
There are many worthy charities. Choose one that speaks to you and take the first step. Then, please tell me your stories.
