Making donations, however small they are, is a wonderful thing to do in life. Through them, you are making a difference. Here are two "deals" on donations that I have come across this week, both for great causes:

LivingSocial is matching $5 donations made to the American Red Cross for the Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami Fund, so your $5 will make $10 of difference.

Gap, Old Navy, and Banana Republic are having their "Give and Get" sale today through Sunday, March 20. You get 30% off with this code and 5% of all that you spend goes to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

I feel like life wouldn't be worth living if I didn't think I was making a difference in someone's life every day. I hope that I make little differences in the lives of the people around me, even down to the smallest things I do.

I am so thankful for the people in my life who support me when tough stuff comes my way. We all know how it feels when things are less than perfect. Sometimes you can power through it on your own, but often the support of others makes all the difference. Support comes in many forms, from a listening ear or a shoulder to cry on to monetary donations and donations of time. The bottom line is we've all been in situations where things are "...Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad..." and severity and comparisons of issues aside, we all know what it's like to need support.

Give support to those in need.

  1. Kait, we lived in Tokyo about 25 years ago and loved the people there. Our dearest friends were from Sendai, Japan. We couldn't find them for nearly a week, but we've now heard that they are alive and well. Their entire city has dissolved. There is nothing left. The Japanese are hardworking, kind and very polite, every dollar donated there will be used in a positive way. I applaud you for getting the word out!
