The holidays are here. What a hectic time of year! But, aren’t you thankful to have the means to enjoy it? You have your health, your friends, and your family. In the midst of giving thanks this Thanksgiving, take time to remember those who are less fortunate than you. As a way of showing how thankful you are for all that you have, wouldn’t it be nice to help someone in need?
November is National Alzheimer’s Disease Month, National Adoption Month, National AIDS Awareness Month, Lung Cancer Awareness Month, and Epilepsy Awareness Month. What an appropriate time to choose a charity to support and help someone else! After all, isn’t that what Thanksgiving is all about? Whether you volunteer your time, or donate funds to a cause in need, providing assistance to charities is a thoughtful way of giving thanks.
