Philanthroper - A website making a difference!

I want to give a quick shout out of this amazing website Philanthroper.  This site features a different non-profit organization each day and you have the option to donate between $1 and $10 to the featured organization.  Their tag line is "A little helps a lot" and the idea behind this site is that if lots of people give just $1 it adds up!  And its true!  They keep a tally of how much is given to each organization and some days it tips the scales at $1,000!  The cool part about this is you can make a difference in someone's life for just $1.  With the economy in the tank these days, Philanthroper  makes it easy and affordable to still make a difference in people's lives without making a dent in our own.

Here's a little blurb from their website:
"You know those daily deal sites? We're another one of those. But instead of selling something, we're sharing the story of a new 501(c)3 nonprofit every day. And if you'd like, you can give them $1. We're trying to make doing good a habit."

The reason I decided to spread the word here is that there's a non-profit featured today that delivers groceries to  seniors in need.  As a food lover and blogger my life revolves around food, great food, every day.   I have never ever even one day in my life been without access to food.  Every single time I cook I am thankful for the bounty and blessing of food given to me and I try to never take it for granted.  Without question, when a food related non-profit appears, I give.  And sometimes I give again.  And again.  Please consider checking out Philanthroper and seeing how you can make a difference.

**A quick disclosure: I have no affiliation or ties to Philanthroper.  I just happen to think they are an amazing organization making a difference in people's lives every day and wanted to spread their goodness around.**

Our blessed table!
