Hi Adventure Philanthropists,
With Thanksgiving behind us and Christmas and Hanukkah right around the corner, it’s time for #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. I participate each year and ask that you join me by making a donation to your favorite local or global charity on Tuesday, Dec. 2, 2014.
