Charity is a practice but it is also a virtue. To be kind and caring, for some, may mean to donate to a cause that is dear to them. I have several such causes. With each charity I support, I have some sort of personal connection.

Take some time to check out the organizations I support, and if you see something that inspires or intrigues you, remember what it means to truly practice charitable giving— do it not because you can or you should, but because it moves you .
