Morning of Kindness

morning of kindness ronald mcdonald house albanyAround this time of year we often get questions from people looking for ways to volunteer or donate to local charities or non-profits. So, here's something that might help point you in the right direction...

A campaign called Morning of Kindness is organizing donations and other acts of kindness at local charities on December 23: Blurbage:

You will have the opportunity to choose from over a dozen local nonprofits who need your help. Simply let us know how many people will be in your party, and which nonprofits you would like to help.
Once you've chosen a nonprofit partner or four, purchase items from their wishlists.
On December 23rd, The Morning of Kindness, visit your chosen nonprofits, drop off your donations, and learn about how your generosity will make a big impact on the people they serve.

Here's more about how the campaign works, along with some backstory.

The list of local non-profits participating ranges from social services org to food pantries to orgs that help homeless people to a humane society.

Registration is required to take part. See the links above for details.

(Thanks, M.)
