What charity or cause do you support?

One of my favorite organizations to support is Kiva. They provide loans that help change lives and the climate simultaneously!

Having a motivation greater than money is often the best way to make my day more productive. When tedious tasks make me feel like I’m just spinning my wheels, supporting a worthy cause gives me a purpose.

That purpose helps me stay focused and reach my goals. Why? Because doing so means I get to continue supporting wonderful programs like the one Kiva offers.

If you don’t already have a cause that fills you with that same passion, I recommend looking for one.

And if you already have one, please share it below for others to consider!

You’ll be amazed at how much meaning it adds to your work
