Filanthropy Friday

In honor of our short vacation to Chicago, I wanted to give to a charity located in Chicago.

My friend Liz was one of the founders of The Chicago Street Project, but I couldn't find a way to donate to that organization so I gave to Chicago Cares.  

Similarly to The Chicago Street Project, Chicago Cares organizes volunteers and provides volunteering opportunities. Since 1991, Chicago Cares volunteers have completed more than 1.1 million hours of service through more than 25,000 projects.   One day, I hope that Cub and I will actually volunteer together on Fridays.

I gave $25 to Chicago Cares in honor of my friend Liz.  You're welcome, Liz - certainly this qualifies as the best gift ever.

  1. It is the best gift ever from the best friend ever. Don't let all the gushy compliments go to your head though. Chicago Cares is a great organization. Chicago Street Project eventually disbanded in Chicago but Chicago Cares has continued to provide great services.

    See you in an hour!
