Giving Tuesday

Today is Giving Tuesday. 
I signed up with The Children's Home in Tampa to help share them and what they do. I am part of the Children's Home "25 Giving 5" team because I know someone who was raised in foster care. I also have 5 children of my own and think that there are things that can and should be done to help others, especially children. 
I have always wanted to be a foster parent myself but just have not been able to commit to it, with time and finances. Mainly finances. I have great respect for those that are. 
Hopefully in doing this some of you reading will take a few minutes to stop by one of their outlets and help support them and what they do. 
They are trying to raise $5000 for the children and families they assist. They want to make families stronger!
