Giving: tis the seasonRead Now
Give until it hurts. Despite the current status of the economy and more than likely yours as well, it is more crucial than ever to Give. Over the years I have become ever more critical of who I decide to give to and build a charitable relationship with. The relationship is the most important piece. Whether its a personal cause, a job-related endeavor, or a individual passion it's important to give to an organization in which you have a connection with. So as I discuss my charitable relationships I do so knowing everyone has their special cause, but also sharing credible organizations as ideas for those who want to begin building their charitable relationships.
A dance marathon at The Ohio State University benefiting Children's Hospital pediatric cancer.
