Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement that inspires millions of people to give, collaborate and celebrate generosity.
On this #GivingTuesday, I want to highlight the causes importance to me and shine a spotlight on them.
The Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation – MMRF – My mom passed away five years ago from this blood and bone marrow cancer. I’m dedicated to supporting their research in the hopes of having more treatment breakthroughs.
The Doe Fund – It’s impossible to not be heartbroken by those without homes when you live in NYC.
For over 30 years, The Doe Fund has led the charge against homelessness and recidivism by providing economic opportunity, housing, career training and supportive services to homeless and formerly incarcerated men.
They believe that providing jobs will help these men start new chapters, and I’ve seen it work first hand.
Ms. JD – Despite comprising half of the graduating law school classes each year, there are far too few women who make partner at law firms or who are promoted to leadership roles at those firms. We can and must do better.
Ms. JD is dedicated to the success of women in law school and the legal profession.
The French Bulldog Rescue Network – Many of you know I have two French bulldog puppies who I adore.
While I didn’t adopt them, I volunteer with this organization that rescues Frenchies and find them new homes. (I wish I could volunteer and foster for every animal rescue out there.)
If you can give time or a donation to a cause or charity that is meaningful to you, please do. Encourage your firm to do it as well as your family.
And not just today. Together we are stronger. There are so many who need help.
Do good because it’s just the right thing to do.
I would love to hear which causes are you supporting and why.
