The Tuesday after Thanksgiving is always "Giving Tuesday", a day to support your favorite charity, and trust me, there are quite a few to choose from! If you don't feel motivated to donate for yourself, how about someone on your holiday gift list?

People who have everything they want/need, often enjoy the gift of someone making a donation in their name to their favorite non-profit organization or worthy cause. If you are stumped for ideas, I have a few for you, located here in Otsego County:

I know there are many other very worthy organizations/causes to donate to that I haven't mentioned. Those are just some ideas to get you started. Remember, now more than ever, supporting local causes and nonprofits is so important and giving a donation is a win-win all around!
