After Black Friday and Cyber Monday, it’s nice to have a day dedicated to charitable giving. Each year in November, I use the tip money I receive through my job to donate to a cause that is meaningful to me and receives good reviews.
This year I chose the Guide Dog Foundation and Vet Dogs. It is located in my home state, and I have bought holiday cards from them in the past. They have sent me a quarterly newsletter and I have been so impressed by their dedication to the animals and their human companions.

Last year I gave to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust and I continue to foster an elephant there. It is an amazing organization in Kenya, dedicated to rescuing elephants (and rhinos and giraffes).
