Happy Monday! I hope your week is off to a great start!
I wanted to share the two charities I donated to for the months of May and June: Mirai no Mori and Second Harvest Japan. I was introduced to these two organizations through my involvement with For Empowering Women (FEW) in Japan. Miri no Mori sends underprivileged children from throughout Japan to camp, giving them unique outdoor experiences and helping them learn English. Second Harvest Japan is the country’s first food bank, delivering groceries to families in need. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting members of each of these nonprofits and the work they’re doing couldn’t be more important.
Enjoy my web finds for the week!
