I try to make charitable donations whenever possible to organizations in which I am involved or that involve my family. For January 2015, I would like to highlight a charity that my kids support through their school. That charity is the American Heart Association’s Jump Rope for Heart event. The physical education instructor at the elementary school attended by my kids has long made this program a focus and, each year, the families of the school raise which, over time, has amounted to quite a substantial contribution.
Jump Rope for Heart is a fundraising and educational campaign of the American Heart Association. I will be supporting the program as my charity of the month for January and my daughter will participate at school.
