I donate to the Red Cross. I donate blood every 56 days.
I work for two companies who have started their own charities and contribute to their own local causes. Alaska Airlines will also match any employee charitable donation.
I use reusable water bottles, coffee mugs, and wine glasses instead of plastic.
I purchase items from companies who are waste-less, such as buying imperfect produce from local farmers and co-ops.
I use ride-share companies and public transportation.
I donate to Donate Life America.
In March 2016 I became a Living Kidney Donor.
I support friend’s charity races as a donor and also participate in races myself.
I run the Bank of America Chicago Marathon for Back on My Feet. They’re a running charity organization that’s fighting to combat homelessness in a number of cities.
I volunteer my time while on overnights at work, packing and delivering food to homeless through a volunteer matching service.
I hand out donations to the homeless, around the streets of Chicago. We provide them with basic essentials, food items, and gift cards to use at local food grocers.
I volunteer for a not-for-profit organization, the Valley Sheltered Workshop. They provide job opportunities to people with disabilities.
