What is the charitable cause you are most passionate about and why?

Empowerment of people and their loved ones and taking care of and preserving our planet. Veterans and those giving back to the community. Organizations that have a high give back ratio. One of my favorites is Teamriverrunner.org (TRR) - A national 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with several chapters in the NCR area and nationwide. TRR Mission is to provide all active duty, veterans, and their families an opportunity to find health, healing, community purpose, and new challenges through adventure and adaptive paddle sports! They can accommodate a wide range of disabilities and skill levels and host a range of events that are free and run by chapter volunteers nationwide.
