Today is #GivingTuesday, the annual day which celebrates nonprofit organizations doing important work. Please support these worthwhile causes which I support (most which help older adults):
DOROT – As a long term volunteer and as a staff member since last spring, I am happy to again recommend this nonprofit which serves older adults in learning technology and in so many other ways. This year’s #GivingTuesday donations will be used to support the winter package delivery, which provides home delivered meals to seniors.Selfhelp Community Services – Every month I teach a virtual class to older adults who participate from the comfort of their home on their computers. Many of these are Holocaust survivors, for which the organization was originally founded to help.Older Adults Technology Services / Senior Planet – Connecting seniors with technology is what makes this organization special – and they’ve now expanded to several locations throughout the countryMazon – helps those who are hungry – this year’s #GivingTuesday campaign is focused on assisting college students who are in need Mitzvah Circle Foundation – This organization helps people in need for items that aren’t available through government assistance.National Council on Aging – helps seniors to live with dignity, purpose and security and to stay healthy and independent South Florida Institute on Aging – Helping to empower people as they age, SOFIA now provides technology training also.
