Where Fashion Is Too Good To Be An Obsession

A Little Goes A Long Way

As we approach the holidays, we become more thankful for what we have. For those we love. For those that love us.

And although each of us may have a down time now and again, we must always keep in mind that there are those who going without. Those who are in pain. Those who just need a little more help.

With that in mind, I’d like to just put a little note into everyone’s heads: a little bit goes a long way. A dollar. A blanket. A can of food.

Never forget that the person or family you are helping would be worse off without your help.

I also wanted to list a few charities that you might want to consider contributing to. Some I have assisted myself. Others I have heard about. But I thought a list would be nice to help remind us that some of us are more fortunate than others in one way or another.

I also encourage anyone to leave a comment with other charities to add to the list. Especially international ones, because I am not well versed with any.

Note: purposes are taken directly from each charity’s website.

  1. Thanks! At our SL wedding, the woman who let us use her sim asked us to make donations to ACS. It’s good to walk the talk!
