Great Charities to Support This Giving Tuesday
Thanksgiving season is all about giving thanks -- and giving back. It's about charitable giving and creating a positive impact, whether financially or as a volunteer. There is nothing more gratifying than knowing you have made a difference to a bigger cause.
If you've decided to support an organization, donating to a cause that's close to your heart is important. We've asked our ambassadors what causes they personally support -- whether it's a cause for animal rights, health charities, or religious organizations -- and charities you can support on and beyond Giving Tuesday.
Cerebral Palsy Foundation
Cerebral Palsy Foundation (@yourcpf) is an organization that helps people and their families living with cerebral palsy. Their mission is to be a catalyst for creating positive change for people living with cerebral palsy through research, innovation and collaboration.
Cerebral Palsy, or CP, is the most common motor disability found in children? The CDC reports that it occurs in 1 to 4 cases every 1,000 births, globally. It is a developmental disability that affects motor skills, muscle tone and movement, hindering the body from moving in a coordinated or purposeful way and often affecting other bodily functions such as breathing, eating, talking, and bladder and bowel control.
Supporting cerebral palsy families is a cause close to MajesticBeds. MajesticBeds helps those living with CP get better sleep with their products mattress, pillow, and adjustable base. Our MB ambassadors Briella (@briellaandme) and Maya (@mightymissmaya) are both young and inspiring warriors living with cerebral palsy.
You can donate to the Cerebral Palsy Foundation at https://www.yourcpf.org/.

Ashley Harland (@ashleyharland_), wellness advocate and MajesticBeds ambassador, is passionate about Bunnies Buddies (@bunnysbuddies), a foundation that rescues dogs from slaughterhouses, kill shelters and the streets of China and South Korea. Ashley is committed to finding them loving homes in the USA.
An estimated 30,000,000 dogs and cats die across Asia each year, all in the name of human consumption. Bunny Buddies works closely with organizations in Asia to not only rescue and repair these damaged souls but to get them into loving homes with pet owners.

Many people donate to organizations that are close to their home and heart -- whether they, or a loved one are personally affected.
