I have always had a passion for giving back and I would invite you to extend your hand to a local charity which is close to your heart. This could include donating clothes, money, food, and or your time. Volunteering your skill or talent can make a huge difference, as many charities need what you specialize in. There are so many wonderful charities that change peoples' lives everyday. I have personally donated endless bags of clothes, household items, and cans of food.  Also, I have been volunteering my craft with the San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission for over six years. This mission houses families in need, feeds and bathes the homeless, and gives people the tools needed to get back on their feet. Finally, in 2014 I had the opportunity of a lifetime to grant a wish for a special couple through Wish Upon A Wedding. This is a charity that donates weddings to couples that are facing terminal illness or serious life-changing circumstances. Not only was this the most incredible experience, but I was blessed to meet a couple who have become friends for life. Please check out the links below for some wonderful charities.    -Brian
