You have $10, $20 or maybe $50 to give to charity. Where should it go? I’d like to suggest a charity that Life Line Screening has recently come to support — the Vascular Disease Foundation.
The Vascular Disease Foundation is a national non-profit organization whose sole purpose is to provide awareness about vascular disease. Its educational newsletter has reached some 13 million people, and as a champion for the Stay in Circulation campaign, VDF has helped raise awareness about the dangers of peripheral arterial disease. They also do a lot more and you can learn about them at their website, www.vdf.org.
Here’s the key. If you donate to the Vascular Disease Foundation, I can tell you where the money is going. I know the people there and know their passion. If I need to, I can call them up, speak to a receptionist and get connected to anyone there. It isn’t a nameless, gigantic behemoth charity where you have to wonder how much of your money is actually being used to help and educate people.
So, please, if you have a few extra bucks to give, say “yes” to VDF and help them reduce the death and disability that comes from vascular disease.
