Walmart is doing an amazing giveaway this year, the 12 Days of Giving. They are giving away a total of $1.5 million in grants to local non-profit organizations that will help out their communities. Such a great cause! I jumped at the chance to nominate a local organization around here and think you should too! I chose to nominate the Child Crisis Center in Mesa, AZ. It takes in children that desperately need love and support who are not getting it from home. They provide these children with a a stable loving environment in which they can heal and grow. I personally, thank heavens, have never experienced domestic violence or child abuse. But, I have been deeply impacted by the stories of people around me. I went on a walk for domestic violence as a teenager and have ever since had a special place in my heart for victims of abuse. It's horrific and devastating and am so grateful for organizations like the Child Crisis Center. My sister volunteered for them and had some amazing and sad stories to tell. Nominating your local non-profit organization to recieve these grants is easy peasy and takes only a couple minutes! All you need is the Name of the nonproft, the contact info, and a website. You can also provide a picture if you'd like. You can go nominate a local organization any time between Nov. 1 and Nov. 18 so only a couple more days!! I would love it if you nominate someone and if you do, please leave a comment letting me know who you nominated. I love to hear of all the good work that's going on out there!
