Research Green Causes Before Giving!
Be sure to check out the Better Business Bureau’s list of charities before making a donation! And PLEASE NOTE: I am NOT supporting or promoting any of these environmental causes. There are a few environmental activists out there who are a little bit too extreme in their dedication to the cause! I just wanted to encourage everyone to stop and think about what THEY are passionate about and to find a charity that supports it. Whether it is breastfeeding awareness (another one of my many causes) or your passionate need to save some obscure disappearing language…lend a hand or a dollar to make a difference
And remember, if you are short on cash but still want to make a difference, volunteer for a green cause in your area. Or, start fundraising for environmental causes and donate your earnings to environmental charities you all agree on. Every little bit helps!
