Happy Friday! 

As hard as it is to believe, the end of the year is upon us. 

The holidays are a perfect time to reflect on all we've been given. And of course, to give to others. 

I'm not much of a holiday gift giver -  but I do want to share with you some charities I really believe in. 'Tis the season for giving and I hope you consider giving to a worthy cause that you believe in.

Your time, your dollars, even your encouragement are all valuable ways to give. 

Flying Kites: A few years ago I climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro in support of Flying Kites. FK is an amazing organization that provides a home and education for orphaned children in Kenya. 

Donors Choose: DC directly supplies underfunded classrooms with the supplies they need. You can pick from a classroom's wish list or simply give a donation in any amount. 

The Human Utility: This is so genius - this organization pays the past due water bills of poor families in Detroit and Baltimore. Turning the water back on - a wonderful gift to give a family for the holidays. 

Global Goods Partners: If you are in the market for beautiful and unique gifts, please consider GGP. All of their items are made by hand by well-paid women artisans in developing countries. GGP pays the women directly for their wares. 

Thank you for reading. 

I wish you beautiful gifting and receiving this season!
