The charities I’ve selected to run for are ones that have spoken to me or have touched the lives of the people I love. There are so amazing charities doing their part in helping others… and these are just a few. By clicking on the name of the organization, you’ll go to their official website. As I post about each charity on Mondays, I’ll link up that post next to it. Thank you for taking the time to read these!
