Giving back to those who deserve some extra GREEN energy offers me a sense of achievement, especially when my purpose in life is to be of service. I like to support those who make a difference, and I LOVE to sponsor people I know and cherish.
I give back by offering my time as a speaker at conferences, free services at organized charitable events, products for charity raffles, plus I donate a portion of sales from select items in my eShop - you’ll see this mentioned in the product descriptions.
Here are some of the charities I support. If their message resonates with you then please consider donating directly to them by clicking on their logo or donate indirectly by purchasing items in my store.
How I give back: I donate money to a number of people to help them expand their businesses.

How I give back: I donate my time as a healer and speaker at the foundation’s Day of Healing and other events, and I donate a percentage of sales on select eShop items.
About the Foundation: The Barbara E. Giordano Foundation helps women veterans and their families meet these needs by providing holistic health education programs, empowering them to experience self renewal.
Women comprise 10% of all veterans. They are the fastest growing segment of the veteran community; and their need for our support is growing as well.
It was Barbara's dedication to bringing holistic health education programs to women, prior to her passing in 1996, that serves as the inspiration for and spirit of this foundation.
They sponsor women from different cultures and circumstances providing hope and support, furthering education, and creating a space for healing.

How I give back: I joined iGive so each time I shop online at any of the collaborating stores (including amazon) a portion of my purchase goes to my favorite cause, a local animal shelter.
About iGive: iGive is a free service to causes and members. Since 1997, iGive has grown to 350,000+ members supporting 50,000+ causes and raised almost $8Million!
You can list any cause, big or small, including animal shelters, schools, churches, disease research groups, social outreach efforts, classrooms, kids' teams, local PTA, arts organizations, and any other organization that is dedicated to doing good.
When iGive members shop via a special link, an "iGive Cookie" is assigned to your browser. This tells the store, "Here is an iGive Member." When you make a purchase the store reports back with the amounts for the donation to your cause. Your purchases are not listed, just the amount you're donating, and you're not charged any extra.
