My philanthropy of choice is normally not the homeless, but this year I volunteered with St. Monica in Santa Monica for their annual Thanksgiving Dinner and Boutique. The homeless/at-risk/low income people of Santa Monica can come to the boutique and pick out items (for free) to take home. The items include clothing, home goods, backpacks, sleeping bags, and toiletries. This was one of the best volunteer experiences I have ever had; and this is so not my thing. Thank you to my friend who encouraged me to get involved at St. Monica. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
