Tis the season for sharing, and we’re spreading the word about some great non-profit groups doing innovative work to make the world a better place. We invite you to check out their stories and join us in lending a hand. We'll make a donation to each charity for every Facebook like or visit to their donation page. As Anne Frank once said, “No one has ever become poor by giving.” Thank you for helping us give a voice to these great organizations. And Happy Holidays.
