As always, I implore you to get involved in your communities, as well. Even the smallest gesture, whether it be “paying it forward” at Starbucks or holding the door for a stranger, can improve the quality of life in your hometowns. If you have some extra time, Make-A-Wish is a great organization to look into, as are the Children’s Miracle Network, Give Kids the World, etc. If you’re an animal person, look into your local SPCA or Humane Society. If you share my passion for early literacy, organize a book drive for First Book or Books for Africa. The opportunities to give back are endless. Now that I’ve given my philanthropy spiel for the 8th time, I wish you all an absolutely fabulous weekend!
