#NaBloPoMo Prompt for Wednesday, July 31, 2013
What causes are you connected to?
For me this is difficult to answer. I don't have one single charity I'm crazy connected to or super insane passionate about. I basically just donate to causes as the mood strikes and/or when something gets my attention. The number one organization I donate to lately has been Goodwill because I'm going through a purge phase and rather than try to deal with a yard sale I'm just giving them my stuff in hopes they can sell it in a thrift store to help those in need.
Goodwill's mission is "...to enhance the dignity and quality of life of individuals and families by strengthening communities, eliminating barriers to opportunity, and helping people in need reach their full potential through learning and the power of work."
I believe as they do that "Every person has the opportunity to achieve his/her fullest potential and participate in and contribute to all aspects of life."
I also believe in doing all I can for the search for cures for miscellaneous diseases/ cancers. I have a soft spot for breast cancer charities because my mother-in- law suffered with breast cancer for years. However, I believe curing any cancer would be a massive breakthrough that could yield cures for other diseases.
Ultimately I want to do everything I can to help myself, my family and anyone that I can to live a happy and healthy life to the fullest :) So I guess you could say that my causes that I'm connected to are healthiness and happiness!
