>> I've chosen each of these specifically, for their 4 star charitynavigator.com ratings. These programs contribute to important issues, and are often far more intersectional than they may seem- Gary Sinise Foundation and Crisis Aid, for instance, have both contributed to Covid relief. Check out Charity Navigator for more info on charities, and for inspiration for new organizations to work with.


PS- see my post about "giving is better than receiving" from the holidays!


okay guys THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR READING. I so hope this lil gift guide has been HELPFUL ! Don't let your pals be Charlie Brown- make sure they know they're loved.
