Why Do You Give?

I am privileged to be able to share with others who could benefit from additional resources. I think it’s important to value our differences, but remember that we are more alike than we are different. I have experienced times of need and been blown away at the generosity of others, and I want to continue to pay it forward.

Currently, I am donating to Housing Hope, an organization that offers various housing types for people without homes and/or low-income households in Snohomish County. This organization is one of many that my mother turned to when trying to rebuild her life after struggles with substance abuse. Ultimately my mother needed more than this organization could offer, but the glimmer of hope they can offer many families who are struggling is sometimes all it takes to keep going. That’s a cause I am proud to support.
