We were made to have relationships and build community. Some of us have things and skills that can improve the life of another, I believe that we need to lookout for moments where we can use our unique skills. It is also proven that when you help someone else you are filled with a sense of both purpose and empowerment; you are intentionally feeling fulfilled in life.
There are some organizations that I participate in with either with my time or financially resources that bring great joy to my life. Here are a few:
Latinas of Legacy: I am the cofounder of this organization and it brings me great joy to be able to give back of my time and resources to the Latino community. You can read more about this organization and also donate of your time and resources. http://www.latinasoflegacy.com/
A21: This organization is very dear to my heart. They are on the battleground and daily putting their own lives at risk to help young women get freed from sex traffickers all over the world. Please consider joining this organization with your financial support. http://www.a21.org/index.php
World Vision: My family and I have been sponsoring a child each for several years now. God placed it in my heart to give the sponsorship as part of a Christmas gift to my family. I must say that year was a special moment in my family's life. We look forward to the letters from our children. Would you consider sponsoring a child?
