I have a lot to be grateful for this year. I’m not saying this to brag, I’m saying this because I know it to be true. I have a roof over my head, a great job, good friends who make me laugh, and family to support me when the road gets a little bumpy. More importantly, I know that not everyone has been as lucky as I have been this year. Because I feel especially fortunate this year, I have decided it is more important than ever for me to give back to those in need.
