Come On. Get Happy.

Hey! Happy Giving Tuesday! You probably know by now that I am a big fan of giving to those in need, and that's what today is all about here on The Internet. In the event you're looking for a good place to give, I've come up with a list of organizations I've either worked with or supported myself. No doubt they would all benefit from your donations. So come on! Get happy!

Denver Rescue Mission: These guys provide meals, shelter, emergency care, rehabilitation services, and family services to folks all over Colorado.

Denver Writes: Their mission is to provide young writers in the Denver area with a supportive community and creative opportunities to express themselves through writing.

*Next Tuesday is Colorado Gives Day, but you can schedule your donation ahead of time if you're planning to give to a Colorado nonprofit.

826 National: We don't have an 826 in Seattle anymore, but they're still doing really good work in seven other cities throughout the U.S. 

Treehouse: I don't know as much about this organization as the others, but Dann's office hosts a toy drive for them this time of year so I'm confident they're a trustworthy operation. 

International Justice Mission: These people are doing some of the most difficult and important work on the planet, in my opinion. Why not give a gift of rescue this Christmas and help free innocent prisoners from jail or help a widow start a small business

Compassion International: I've been sponsoring a girl named Rosi through Compassion since I was a college student. Big believer in the work these folks are doing over here.
