Okay, okay. My last selection in the 12 days of holiday gifts from Richmond VA businesses isn’t really a business, but I think you’ll let it slide seeing my choice is making a donation to one of our great Richmond VA charities.
Richmond, Virginia is one of the most philanthropic cities I have ever lived in. Sure, there may be more charities in another city, but no one shouts as loud in support of their cause like Richmonders do. Giving back is a thread you will find woven into the very coat of this Southern city. I have many friends who would love nothing more than for me to skip the wine & chocolates, and in lieu make a donation to a wonderful charity in their name for their holiday gift.
Below you will find some of my favorite Richmond VA charities to make a donation to for the last pick in my 12 days of holiday gifts from Richmond VA businesses. Don’t see yours there?
