One of the great things I have learned through blogging is the original ways to get news sent right to your mail box. Mashables is just one of those ways to get specific Social Media news quickly and efficiently. No more paper lying around your house all week and no more wasting trees to go along with my reading. Mashables arrives in my mailbox every day and I can quickly scan the lead stories to see if there is anything further I would like to read. Today one of the social media articles that was featured gave me an opportunity to give at the same time. It was called Aprons to Actions and just the title enticed me to look further.
Day 185: Give 185
The Home Depot Foundation is asking for your help to decide where $1,000,000 should be donated to. Their initiative is called Aprons to Actions and is focusing on organizations that need to build, rebuild, or renovate in ways that will help the community. I decided to take a look further and one organization caught my eye. The Great Fall’s Children’s Receiving Home.
“For nearly 50 years, The Great Falls Children’s Receiving Home has provided safe, temporary shelter to thousands of children who have been removed from their homes of origin due to child abuse, neglect, abandonment, parental drug use, domestic violence, and parental incarceration. Each of these children carries a heartbreaking story of his or her abuse. Our goal is not only to provide these children a safe environment, but to show them that nurturing, compassion and love are the norm and not the exception.”
Their house needs constant renovations and upgrades to keep it safe and lovely for they children. If my vote will help to give them everything they need it is one minute out of my day I am happy to give my vote. Together we could get them the money they need to support the children of their community. Vote today – give today!
