Holiday Volunteering in Orange County - 2016

9pojvpew_gw-jennifer-pallian.jpg

Each year families come to me and ask about how BEST to give back. The truth is, it's totally subjective. There are some organizations that are better than others, but if you feel good about it and you can directly fulfill a need, that is the point. That is charity. The holidays are a great time to introduce kids to giving back, as well as to start meaningful charitable traditions. 

Here are some of my favorite volunteer opportunities in Orange County, Ca:

Happy helping friends! Go out and spread cheer! 

 

*If you want to do "more" than just give to charity, consider creating a legacy plan for your family, doing some philanthropic-based work, or weaving giving into your business plan. Email us if you want some ideas.
