Wellness Worthwhile: Consider, Contribute and Celebrate National Philanthropy Day
Each month, Sally Hickerson, Spa Director at Wild Dunes Resort gives us a wellness tip that could be useful this time of year. Read on for something to think about as you give thanks this month.
In honor of Thanksgiving and National Philanthropy Day (November 15th), I’d like to focus less on the wellness of one person and more on the wellness of all people. Many of us consider Thanksgiving a time to reflect on the things in our lives that we are grateful for and to reach out to those in need.
This year I encourage each of you to think both locally and globally. You may already contribute to local food drives but consider also contributing to organizations like Doctors Without Borders, Heifer Project, or the Carter Center. Each organization provides medical care or food to people all around the world without the resources to provide for themselves.
If you prefer to keep your contributions closer to home, there are several organizations in the Charleston area that could use support as well as our very own Sunshine Fund. As you’re counting your blessings this month, please think about the wellness of others and do what you can to help. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!!
