Starting today, I'm going to feature a nonprofit every Friday. Giving back has been a huge part of my life for long time, and there are a lot of really great nonprofits that help a variety of people. Even if you can't donate your money, you can always donate your time or offer to help an organization in other ways.
The first nonprofit I'd like to introduce is Art for a Cause based out of Birmingham, Michigan. My roommate gave me a gift from Art for a Cause for my birthday - they focus on "employing people with special needs; cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, cancer survivors, and a variety of cognitive challenges." They sell "tools to mend the world," ranging from kitchen utensils to gardening and hardware tools.
Check out their website - www.artforacause.com - or email them at email@example.com if you're interested in purchasing their CuteTools! -- they make for great gifts! I have the wine opener and it's adorable.
