Giving Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday…My Favorite Charities.

With Giving Tuesday behind us and holiday season ahead, many New Yorkers are finding a charity that they’re passionate about through which to spread holiday cheer.

With Giving Tuesday behind us and holiday season ahead, many New Yorkers are finding a charity that they’re passionate about through which to spread holiday cheer.

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
