Banding together for the goodness of humanity makes perfect sense this month.
Surely there's one person on your holiday list that would appreciate a charitable donation in their honor. We can't help but use our PR resources to highlight some of the worthy organizations we adore this month.
Here's our ongoing list of Wildy Worthy December organizations, so far (we'll keep adding to it through the month):
The Pixie Project is a non-profit animal adoption center and rescue. They offer a variety of services to the public including but not limited to: pet adoption, pet owner education and support and low cost and free spay and neuter and vet services for homeless and low-income pet owners. The majority of Pixie Project's animals come from rural Oregon shelters.
- Ronald McDonald House Charities of Oregon and Washington This group provides a "home away from home" for families with seriously ill children. Check out their amazing holiday gift store allowing families to pick out gifts when they are far from home. Donate here.
Fighting Pretty Arrange to send a “Pretty Package” to a woman (you know or don't know) undergoing cancer treatment; or to someone who has completed treatment. Packages include luxurious beauty treats and, most important, signature mini pink boxing gloves. You can send or sponsor one package for $25. Donate here.
- Donate Life Northwest Over 120,000 U.S. patients are on the transplant waiting list. Nearly 3,000 live in Oregon and Washington. A growing shortage of living and deceased organ donors means not everyone receives their transplant in time. This month, a local organ-donor-family will match your dollar-amount gift if you share a few words about what inspires you to support organ donation. Donate here.
- American Red Cross We make no secret of our loyalty to this organization for blood, military support, disaster relief and more. This season, the Red Cross has a gift catalog that offers Red Cross items for your generous donations. Donate here.
