We Enjoyed Being a Part of these in 2015

Maybe you’re looking for some charitable organizations you can help out this year. We learned a lot, had a good time and did our part for some great causes in 2015. So here are some we really like to keep in mind.

Open Heart Magic
We had a great time at the Tricks are for Kids event. Open Heart Magic brings in a majority of its operating funding on this one night, so it’s important that it goes off without a hitch. We wanted to help because we love what they do. They bring bedside magic to hospitals to cheer up young patients. How cool is that right?

Mercy Home
Mercy Home gives kids a stable environment to grow, learn and be kids in. They throw a gala every year and it’s a blast. It’s a well-attended event with many alums coming back to check in. As funding gets more scarce for operations like these, it’s hard not to feel compelled to help in some small way.

HFS Scholars
HFS provides financial assistance and mentoring to inner-city kids who show academic promise and leadership. They’ve helped out three valedictorians at top schools in the city. It just doesn’t seem fair that kids with such academic promise should have to struggle or even skip college because they come from families who struggle financially. We helped with their Casino Night, which was a hit.

Ronald McDonald House
Helping a sick child fight their illness takes a big enough emotional toll on a family. Adding a financial strain can make it all almost too much to bear. RMHC helps families so they can focus on being there for their sick child. One of RMHC’s fundraisers is called Meals from the Heart. It’s a great way to help out. We’re glad we did.

Take Your Marks
And we ran through the cold for good causes this year in some really great events: The Shamrock Shuffle, Hot Chocolate Run and Susan G. Komen. So we didn’t get good weather, we still managed to have a good time. We look to do more of these in 2016. Runners High is an easier thing to come by when you’re running to help those in need in your community.
