Here is the Runnymede Tip of the Week:

While many people donate money to charity at year end, you can donate at any time of year. Find a cause that you believe in and donate your time, talent, or treasure. One of the biggest excuses for avoiding charitable donations is, “I don’t have enough money to make a difference” but this simply isn’t the case anymore. Many online charities let you direct your dollars to specific projects so you know exactly where your money is going. One organization that I donated to recently is Donorschoose.org which connects teachers in high-need communities to those who want to help. It is sad to think that schools aren’t able to provide classroom basics or art supplies. You can search for a school in your area and look for a project that resonates with you. I supported a 1st grade class to provide them a comfortable carpet to lay down on while they can come together to learn new skills or to lay on while they work on assignments together. Not only did I help a classroom in need but I received letters from the students themselves as a special thanks. One last thing. Remember, if you work for a large organization, check to see if there is a company match that could double or triple your impact.

What causes are you supporting and why?
