Today is National Nonprofit Day. Everyday, a volunteer reads to school children; patients receives their medication; lawyers provides legal services for low-income individuals; a first-time homebuyer is moving into their own home. National NonProfit Day reminds us that each of these scenarios are possible because of the work performed by capable men, women and organizations.Through nonprofits, people and organizations are able to selflessly provide awareness, research, and aid to people who need it most.
A nonprofit that is close to my heart is one that I help run. I am on the board of directors for an organization known as the Parker Secret Closet. We provide free formal wear to teens that may not be able to afford to spend some insane amount of money on a school dance. We believe in reusing and recycling so you and your family can spend that money on something else! Visit our website here: www.parkersecretcloset.org
There are so many amazing nonprofits out there... tell me about your favorite one!
Hi There! I am Leah Ryan, Lead Publisher and Social Media + Event Coordinator for Housewives in the City here in Denver, Colorado! I have lived in Colorado my entire life, born and raised. My family has some deep Colorado roots and I am fascinated with anything related to Colorado History!
I love to spend time with my boyfriend, cook, read, use my creativity in every aspect possible and if there is a puppy around... that is where my attention will be! Please come introduce yourself to me if you see me out and about and especially at one of our monthly Ladies Night Out events! XOXO - Leah
