The time of giving thanks and giving gifts almost upon us. As the season really starts to heat up everybody will be on the lookout for the best deals at their favorite stores. The competition is fierce as shoppers look to check items off their holiday shopping lists. Another thing you can be sure of is there will be an increase in people standing on corners and in front of stores asking you to give to charity. It always feels good to be able to give even a little back whenever I can. I feel I have been fortunate and know someone else needs my spare change more than me. Most of the charities you see are reputable. I always encourage people to do their research before donating to any charity as they can be very misleading sometimes. Giving Assistant is a great way to find the best holiday shopping deals from the comfort of your own home and know that your purchases are making a difference to a family in need.
