Each of you have many gifts, skills, talents and abilities that the world needs. There are many charities and non-profit organizations that require the talents of volunteers and financial resources in order to manage their programs. I encourage you to examine the causes that you are passionate about and research organizations that you can contribute your time to as a volunteer and / or donate financial resources.
Below are some of the amazing organizations that I support.
The Hospital for Sick Children
Also known as SickKids, The Hospital for Sick Children is an excellent, world renowned hospital and research facility that helps ill children and teens. Throughout the year, SickKids organizes numerous fundraising events to support the hospital.
