And here’s the most important thing I learned during 2017:
Gift Giving – At this time of year, contributing to a charitable organization is not just about getting a tax break – it’s about sharing your blessings. If you’re seeking a worthy cause, here is a nonprofit where 87% of donations go directly to helping children:
Samaritan’s Feet – Did you know 1.5 billion people suffer from parasitic foot diseases picked up through contaminated soil? This group’s mission is to “serve and inspire hope and opportunity among the world’s most impoverished children, by washing their feet, providing a new pair of shoes, and encouraging them to pursue their dreams.” A $20 contribution buys shoes for a barefoot child and moves the charity closer to its goal to give 10 million pairs to 10 million children in 10 years.
