Make a Difference

“If you don’t stand for something, you will fall for anything.”

Welcome to my Charities Page! 

Here, I would like to share with you a little about some of the causes I care about, in hopes that you will share yours with me by adding to the linkies below!

I’ve divided them into the broadest categories I could think of, so please add your organization appropriately. PLEASE: as much as I understand the need for them, please don’t add organizations that are generally surrounded by controversy- use your best judgement when adding. If you add a local group, feel free to put the location in the title for neighbors who might stop by here!
