Dear friends, 

In this time of Thanksgiving and Christmas, please be grateful for what you have and think about how you can help your community, your brothers and sisters both near and far….

This has been a heart wrenching year, it has been a devastating three years for Armenians.  Of course, there are human tragedies all over the world that we must not forget either. 

Please make a donation before the end of the year and get your tax deduction as a bonus.

The number of organizations to donate to are overwhelming.  Please pick two to five organizations to focus your donations too.

Of course, charity begins at home.   But let us not forget our kin in far away lands.
