Life can sometimes get in the way, even when making an important decision like selecting a deserving charitable organization! About a week into May, we realized that we still had not chosen our April charity. But it just so happened that a local networking organization that regularly supports philanthropy held an event. The charity they selected was such an inspiration that we could not resist.
TweetDivas is a group of women in the Triangle Region of North Carolina who use the successful social media service, Twitter. The group meets every month while giving back to the community at the same time. Some of the organzations that have been supported by TweetDivas include Horne United Methodist, a local church that supported efforts in Haiti, the Women’s Center of Wake County, helping homeless women with children, and the Kramden Institute, providing computers to students in need.
At the most recent meeting, the TweetDivas chose to support The Helene Foundation. This invaluable organization provides support and comfort to mothers and their families as the women undergo cancer treatment. They assist with purchasing food, provide transportation and offer childcare so that the mother can focus on her treatment and recovery. Of course, family support of this kind is dear to our hearts and we are happy to provide a little additional help to such a mission.
We are proud to have selected The Helene Foundation as our April Charity of the Month!
