      My organization is Tampa bay harvest. They are the middle man that gets food restaurants aren’t using and give to families in need. I think it’s important to support local organizations as well as those abroad because there are Americans,our own neighbors who need a helping hand too.

      One of the charities that tugs at my heart the most is St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital – http://www.stjude.org – They do so much for children and their families, not to mention the tons of research they do to combat children’s cancers. Our children are our future, and we have to take good care of them. St. Jude’s certainly does that in many ways.

      We don’t have babies or animals on our website, but what we do is look incarcerated men and women in the eye and tell them they are human beings with a heart and soul, that they do not have to be bound by their past and we will walk with them through reconciliation, restoration and peacemaking…we are M2/W2 Restorative Christian Ministries.

      I support Emmaus Christian School and the values they teach our kids along with the high academic standards they uphold. My two older children have graduated from Emmaus and my son is a 6th grader at Emmaus. The staff and teachers are amazing. I am so blessed to be able to have my children here. Private education comes at a cost so we are always fundraising but it is worth it!

      You can find our scholarship on facebook at Coweta County Corrections’ Officers Scholarship. We give scholarships to high school seniors who want to go into the field of criminal justice. My coworkers and I try to give 1000 scholarships to a student at each of the three local high schools. There isn’t a better feeling than seeing the look on the recipient’s face when you call their name. It feels like telling the kids “we believe in you.”

      I like New Zealand Red Cross due to the fact that they help out in disasters nationally and internationally, and they also help out in local activities within the local community.

      Caring for Cats is an all volunteer run, no-kill cat shelter. 100% of all donations go directly into caring for cats at the shelter. It’s small, but successful with a 90%adoption rate. Last year it took in over 145 cats and found forever homes for 138 of those animals.
      Cats come from:
      • foreclosed homes with animals left behind
      • seniors who must surrender their animals as they move into care facilities
      • people who move and cannot take their companion animals
      • people who find strays abandoned in parking lots, fields or in neighborhoods, including many un-spayed females with kittens.

      We are a 501(c)3 non-profit in Southern California whose mission is to raise funds for the construction of a skate park in our community where skaters can practice their sport in a legal and safe location. We live in a hilly area and want to keep kids out of harm’s way and show that we support their sport. Our kids deserve an excellent skate park so they don’t have to ‘sneak’ to skate or get $90 tickets from local police.

      I think the idea behind Heifer International is genius. Buying a cow or any livestock might seem strange to people here in the US but could mean the survival & independence of a family. It’s such a simple concept & costs so little. More than any other organization it lives up to the Bible quotation, “Give a man a fish; you have fed him for today. Teach a man to fish; and you have fed him for a lifetime.” During this holiday season of giving, what could be better?
