THis season there are so many worthy charities to contribute to. In addition to the sweet Cookies for Kids Cancer, we would love to share some other ideas we have for teaching our children to be charitable this season!

Jacob’s Cure is a non-profit foundation, created by a mothers passion to save the life of her son, Jacob, who is afflicted with Canavan disease, a devastating genetic brain disorder. Because of an enzyme deficiency, Canavan demyelinates the brain. Jacob is essentially trapped in his body. Without intervention, Jacob will lose his sight, his ability to swallow, may be stricken with seizures, become too weak to fight off illness and die within the first decade of his life.
