DALLAS -- All done passing the pie, braving Black Friday, and getting cheap finds online for Cyber Monday?
Then take a lesson from a child who knows charity!
"Hey guys, it's me Kaden," Mac & Cheese and Pancakes founder Kaden Newton said in a Twitter post Tuesday morning. "It's Giving Tuesday. Please donate to one of my favorite charities."
The seven-year-old's charity of choice is No Kid Hungry, but the point is consumption season is over. It's #GivingTuesday!
NewsFix has been up close and personal with some fantastic foundations and courageous causes in 2017, and any one of them could use your help today and every day.
"You know you're helping children who are suffering from childhood cancer, and not just them but also their families," Gold Ribbon Confections founder Maurice Ahern told NewsFix about his baking company that funds multiple child cancer foundations. That includes the one made for his son, the Superhero Micah Foundation.
"How do you keep that community full of love and full of family but also equip them to be able to have a better life for themselves that's not just survival?" Puede Network founder Adan Gonzalez told us in August.
Gonzalez started Puede Network as a way to convince less fortunate kids from his part of Oak Cliff understand that the world can benefit them too, and he intends to give them the tools to make it happen.
"Be an advocate not just for our family but for all the families," Sara Stamp told us less than a week before her daughter, Layla, died from cancer.
The Layla Strong Foundation is here to help find a cure for Layla's type of cancer, Medulloblastoma, and to assist other families going through what they went through.
Those three are far from it.
And remember Blake's Snow Shack? Now that he's become a national sensation, the National Down Syndrome Society made the Blake Pyron Entrepreneurship Scholarship, and you can donate to that!
"We are gathering with our friends at Texas Instruments who are assembling over 1300 meals to be delivered to home bound and hungry seniors," United Way of Metro Dallas President and CEO Jennifer Sampson said Tuesday.
Who can you help today and every day? Here's a list of some we haven't named yet!
- Rise Against Hunger
