Today when I opened my Daily Candy email, I was pleasantly surprised to see a feature on a local nonprofit initiative, Reason to Give. Reason to Give is focused on helping residents of the Humboldt Park neighborhood, by providing personal and direct opportunities to give. Residents share their stories on the website, and you can select which individual or family to assist. After you make your donation, Reason to Give takes care of everything else (delivering the supplies, etc).
I love the concept of this program because I can select who to help and can “see” where my donation is going. It’s kind of like, I’m playing fairy godmother (in a real and sincere way).
