In the annual slew of gift guides and shopping galore, giving back to the community feels all the more meaningful and provides such necessary perspective into our lives. I've talked candidly about the charities I am involved with and invested in, so I wanted to revisit some of my posts throughout the past year to highlight their great causes during a season where giving our time and love to others is so joyous and special.
A Shelter for Cancer Families - ASCF provides free tangible support in the Texas Medical Center to families affected by cancer based on their needs, regardless of age, cancer type, treatment status or income.
The Children's Museum of Houston - As a member of the board, I have seen first-hand how the museum addresses the needs of all children in our diverse and growing community.
Texas Children's - I used to work for TCH and since started Youth Hope Association in partnership with the Texas Children's Cancer Center, so this is especially close to my heart.
So many of these foundations and centers provide extra volunteer opportunities during this time of year. This is such a neat way to spend family time together, so seize the reason for the season and plug in some time to give back this year.
