We wanted to shine some light on a few really wonderful organizations that would love your support this holiday season. A donation to a cause that is dear to a family member or a friend makes for a truly meaningful gift. Below are a few ideas on ways to give. We are focusing on national and international groups that give the majority of their funds to charitable programs (not administrative costs). But I encourage you to research local organizations in your communities too. If you’d like to help, Liz is organizing a drive to raise clipper cards for bay area refugee families (more info here on our instagram).
