Charitable

You’ve inherited $5 million, with instructions that you must give it all away — but you can choose any organizations you like to be the beneficiaries. Where does the money go?

This was an easy Daily Prompt for me. There are several different causes that are important to me. One such cause is literacy. I have had a lifelong love of books and reading. It saddens me to read statistics on how many people cannot read. But the main cause that comes to mind is the Spina Bifida Association ( http://www.spinabifidaassociation.org.) I’m sure this is no surprise to a lot of you who know/have read about my physical disability. I want to be the best ambassador/spokesman I can be for Spina Bifida.

  1. I think i would donate to various charities including many that are local but on a grander scale to “Autism Speaks”..these are the kids I work with on a daily basis so it sits close to my heart….

    and James, I truly am a techno-imbecile so forgive me if I am not tweating correctly-lol!

    • Thanks for commenting, Brie. Autism Speaks is a wonderful cause, and one that makes sense for you as you work with kids who are affected by it. I love hearing from people on questions like this since it helps me get to know them a bit better. And as for Twitter, so far so good 😉

  2. This is a great question. I feel like I’ve had a mini version of this in deciding where to direct gifts in lieu of flowers for our daughter’s funeral. We always thought Ronald McDonald House would be top of our list. The impact of her death immediately pressed in the urgency of eternity focus though. We still greatly value organizations that bring aide to such immediate needs and health research. Instead we chose to make a bulk purchase books and handed them out at the visitation and service. Specifically we bought Holding on to Hope, by Nancy Guthrie for the purpose of sharing game-changing theology. This wouldn’t translate to $5mil but made me think about our story.

  3. I have a passion for restoration in Rwanda, and would love to give to the, “As We Forgive” initiative. The stories have changed my life! Having money to give would be wonderful, and having the ability to be there in person would be a dream come true: http://www.asweforgivemovie.com
