I missed Giving Tuesday (when you take an extra day for a holiday for travel - you end up thinking that Tuesday is Monday...) But I didn't want to miss out entirely. Here is a list of the 3 places that I will for sure be donating to this season (in no particular order)
1. Homeboy Industries
If you haven't read Fr. Greg Boyle's book Tattoos on the Heart - you must run and get it (and buy it for every person on your list). He also just published his new book called Barking to the Choir.
I love the work that they are doing in my own city of Los Angeles. You can find out all about their work with former gang members and formerly incarcerated men and women on their website.
I will also be watching the documentary as soon as I can (how did I miss this).
I listened to him on NPR Fresh Air on our ride home and this quote really struck me:
2. Heart's Home
Heart's Home is the organization I volunteered with for a year and a half in Brazil. I'm sure you've heard me talk about their work so many times. This year they are raising money to fix a roof in Romania. You can find the GoFundMe here!
DigDeep is run by my friend, George. They bring clean water to the Navajo Nation. Their website is full of amazing videos of their work. This year they are trying to bring clean drinking water to an ENTIRE village! Get all the info for the Navajo Water Project here.
Today is the last day for our 40% off sale - we are so blown away by all of the orders. If you saved a lot from the sale, consider donating a percentage of that savings to a charity! Thank you for all of your support. We love doing this life with you!
