Giveaway: Edo a Little, Help a Lot

December has rolled around really quickly this year! I feel like time has flown by and now I am semi-scrambling to sort out my life before the end of the year. One thing that happens a lot at this time of year are all the holiday charity campaigns and I struggle to decide where I can donate my money and time when both are quite limited – this year more than most.

The Edmonton Food Bank and Campus Food Bank are two organizations that are really important to me, because people shouldn’t have to decide between basic needs like shelter and food, so I appreciate the support that organizations like these contribute to the community. Ideally, I would love to see people not need these services, but until that time, I try to donate whatever I can to both organizations. With the Alberta economy taking such a huge hit with the decline in oil prices, I know that many organizations need as much help as they can get to ensure that they can help as many people as possible.
