I love discovering new charities and seeing what amazing work they are doing in people's lives, but I have a few I just keep going back to giving to.
1. St. Jude's children's hospitals.
Because.. children.. as a mom I cry every time I even think of my baby being sick. So supporting them is something very near and dear to my heart.
2 .Voice of the martyrs.
Helping prosecuted Christians around the world. Helping people imprisoned for their faith and helping their families. This charity always amazes me with their hard and dedicated work. They do and share so much.
3.Juvenile diabetes research foundation
Not a cause that has been super important to me in the past, but since my husband is diabetic and has been since he was very young, I have learned a lot about this disease, and even though it's a disease you can manage, it's hard and it's hard to have a spouse with it and it posses several challenges for us as a family. I can't imagine what it's like to have a little one with it.
I have mainly donated to them around Christmas time, when they do their shoe box - operation Christmas child and I love it. We have both done filling our own shoe box and filling out shoe boxes online. When our kids are older I really want to focus more on doing the shoe boxes ourselves and teaching our kids to help others. But this past Christmas when time got away from us it was super nice to have the "create online option".
Faithbox isn't something I'm going to call my favorite charity since I have only donated and tried it once. But I think it's a neat idea, so I do want to mention them.
It's a monthly subscription that sends you some different faith based items. I got a devotion that I still like to look in. Not only do you get a few things to help your walk with Jesus.. but each purchase feeds a child 3 meals.
