Growing Bolder is partnering with the Abram and Ray Kaplan Foundation to help make it easy to make a difference!
Why give back?
**Small steps make big changes. Just five minutes of your time or a nominal amount of money could feed a family, teach someone who's unemployed a new skill or assist someone who's had a family emergency.
**Studies show that people who donate their time and energy are happier, healthier, and more fulfilled.
**Your actions impact the community as a whole. And who doesn't want to live in a better world?
