Giving thanks for all the givers, nonprofits

The holiday season usually provides the time and inspiration for us to reflect on and appreciate the good fortune in our lives. We may donate money, food or toys to a local charity; we may post daily expressions of gratitude on our social media accounts; we may take a moment to say a silent “thank you” for all that we have, particularly when confronted by news stories of suffering and despair.
