Black Friday and Cyber Monday are two days that millions of consumers wait their entire year for. It’s a day where dream flat screen TV’s and Keurigs become reality and a chance to start our Holiday shopping on the right foot. But in the event that you wanted to spend a little more, might we suggest some local charities? With just a few clicks, you could help someone in need and make their Holiday a little jollier too!
Benefiting those without homes, this nonprofit collects sheets, soap, razors, and more. But more than shelter, it gives people a second chance to return to day to day life. For more information on how you can help, go to http://www.projecthome.org/donate/.
