There are more ways to enjoy Thanksgiving than eating lots of turkey, pumpkin and mashed potatoes. The fall holiday marks out a time to remember what we are grateful for in our lives. If you want to do more this year to show how you are thankful, consider helping a charitable cause. It’s a great way to give back. You can learn more about important causes and make it a family event.
Non-profits could not exist without support from the community. Whether you give one holiday donation or become a monthly donor, any help will be greatly appreciated. Plus, charitable donations are tax deductible, so you get a little benefit as well as the organization.
If you are worried about where your money is going, do some research on a charity’s structure. Many charities are very transparent, and some even give all their donations directly to their cause. Find out more about direct giving at www.beautifulworldcanada.org.
