The Spirit of the Holidays
Posted on December 22, 2014 in Blogging by cmblogger
In this era of political brinksmanship and a media machine salivating for the next big story, it’s easy to overlook the spirit of altruism and community that really define the holiday season, whatever your faith. In the end, whether you celebrate Christmas or Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or your own holiday tradition, nothing can replace the lasting joy and sense of peace that comes from helping another living being in their journey forward.
Opportunities for giving abound online. The National Breast Cancer Coalition has been rated “A” by the nonprofit charity monitoring group CharityWatch.com. Endorsed by medical researcher Dr. Susan Love, media personality Linda Ellerbee, and former President Bill Clinton, the organization has set 2020 as the year breast cancer is defined as a curable illness in our world. Will they achieve their deadline? We hope so. Check out their website to learn more. http://www.breastcancerdeadline2020.org/about-the-deadline/.
Charity Watch has awarded http://www.childfindofamerica.org an A+ for spending more than 75% of their donations for programs instead of compensation, as well as for providing an “open book” on their spending and financial records to the public. Providing free investigative services, referrals, and support for families of children who have been abducted, the organization has brought thousands of children together with their loved ones since it was founded in 1980.
Whatever your holiday, we hope you enjoy the season with those you love. From Captain Marketing, we wish you all the best.
