#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving back by the power of social media. We at Hampton Roads Housewives collaborate with some amazing charities throughout the year!
Help us help many of these local grassroots charities that help so many in the Hampton Roads area.
One of the best things you can do is get involved. I have created this directory of some of the local charities we worked along with over these last few years with Hampton Roads Housewives In The City.
They are a non-profit organization and that supports Caregivers with an Annual Event, their loved ones, those that are differently challenged, wounded warriors, cerebral palsy, all different abilities.
They offer loving, not-your-typical support through Beyond Boobs!(our community-based, in-person support) and Pink Link (our nationwide, 24/7, online support). Here for the Girls creates and serves an extended family of young survivors (diagnosed under 51) who help one another through diagnosis, treatment, and beyond.
