As I reach this milestone of turning 40, I see how fortunate I have been to have a great community of friends and family who give me inspiration, love, and support. I have had access to education, resources, and opportunities. I want to use this opportunity to provide some of the benefits I have had to others who have not had them. I would love to have the collective consciousness of my community help widen our circle of support and giving. I will match whatever you contribute. Thank you for being who you are.
I looked at many organizations and it was hard to pick one. I chose Global Giving for a few reasons. Projects on their site mostly seem to emerge locally and from the grassroots. I get inspired by seeing the things people are doing across the world to make an impact in their communities. The organization gets high ratings on transparency, expenses, and other things that make me confident funds are going to those who need them.
Let me know which projects inspire you and thanks for inspiring me!
