To begin my list of charitable/philanthropic/feel good programs I love to support:
Give 2 The Troops
(Recognized by the American Red Cross and US Dept. of Defense)
“…supporting the physical, moral, and spiritual health of America’s armed forces in combat zones around the world through letters and care packages”
Neuse River Golden Retriever Rescue, Inc.
“…NRGRR, Inc., is a non-profit organization staffed by volunteers, who work hard to find loving, ‘forever’ families for homeless Golden Retrievers.”
Feed The Firefighters
“The purpose of Feed The Firefighters is to support firefighters and other emergency personnel who serve the community through their heroic work. It does this by supplying food and other nourishment during emergencies of extended duration and increasing public awareness of the contributions firefighters make to the community.”
Relay For Life
(especially at NCSU!)
March 23, 2007 – Let’s make cancer history!
“Relay For Life is a fun-filled overnight event designed to bring together those who have been touched by cancer in our community. At the event, we celebrate survivorship and raise money to help the American Cancer Society in its mission to save lives, help those who have been touched by cancer, and empower individuals to fight back.”
