The Importance of Giving Back, Day One

Every day this week, myself, along with other bloggers/content creators are banding together to show why it's important to each and every one of us to "give back". Giving back to your community or causes that are important to you and your family is something that not only leaves you feeling good but truly can make an impact in people's lives. We've all pooled together our own money to make donations to a different, very worthwhile charity each day this week. We aren't millionaires and we can all certainly say that we are busy but we thought it was important at this time of year to show that being charitable isn't something we do to be stylish, it's something we do because we care about others less fortunate than we are. Along with our donations, we encourage you to make small donations yourself (just click on through) because every little but counts. We promise, it will make you feel awesome... and because we like to have a little fun as well, there's a giveaway each day! You heard me- each day, a fantastic brand, who believed this was an amazingly cool and worthy project is offering up a giveaway to the readers who visited to learn about a great charity, some fabulous ladies and a cool brand. Today we are teaming up with Derma E to support Friends of Animals! Make sure to click through each gal's picture to visit their site and maybe give them a shout out for being so awesome!

Today's donation was made to Friends of Animals. Something we all felt was a great charity to highlight was one that supported and created programs that protected creatures on this Earth. Friends of Animals does a TON of great work including fighting for animal rights, creating refuge programs, protecting natural habitats, spaying and neutering our domestic animals and raising awareness of all the issues that face the animals in this world. We share the Earth with them and it's important to support these types of programs. Check out what Friends of Animals is doing and if you feel moved, a donation, I know, would be appreciated!
