This time of year, Kelly Erb of Forbes asks for nominations for her "12 Days of Christmas" feature, which highlights worthy orgs. Nominate yours here.
"As I do every year, I’m asking readers to submit, via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, the name of a charity that most deserves a boost this year for the 12 Days of Charitable Giving. Ideally, it would be one that you have supported financially over the past year or that you plan to support before the year end. In addition to the name, I’ll need the city where the charity is located, what it does and why you support the charity (a personal story would be great). Please also link to the web site if the organization has one (Facebook is okay, too): the more information that you can provide, the better." -- Kelly Phillips Erb, Forbes
