We just had a day of giving thanks, plus two more for getting great deals on seasonal gifts. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back.
Today, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.
It’s a simple notion; we all come together to give something more.
With this in mind, here are three recipients worthy of your donations:
15-40 Connection is an emerging national organization committed to raising awareness about the life-saving advantage of early cancer detection. They empower individuals to take personal responsibility for their health, check themselves for cancer, and take assertive action in response to persistent health changes. 15 to 40-year-olds are diagnosed with cancer nearly five times more frequently than young children. However since 1975, improvements in their survival rates have not kept pace with those for other age groups. 15-40 Connection strives to improve cancer survival rates for this overlooked population by providing educational resources, tools, and programming.
Worcester County Food Bank (WCFB) is the region’s leading anti-hunger organization distributing over 5 million pounds of donated food and grocery product in partnership with food donors, financial supporters, and volunteers. WCFB provides this product to a network of 138 partner agencies that have programs for feeding people including food pantries, community meal sites, and shelters.
Great Dog Rescue New England is a nonprofit, shelterless, all-breed rescue group headquartered in Massachusetts. The group is comprised of volunteers all over New England who love dogs and want to help those that end up homeless through no fault of their own.
