#100daysofhappiness: Day 11

I have always had a passion for Non-profit work! Before working for my families business I worked in non-profit!  Since, changing jobs I still wanted to give back. One of the first places I became involved with was the Arthritis Foundation.

I have been working with them since I was in college (AOII’s Philanthropy is the Arthritis Foundation)! Check HERE for how AOII helps give back!

Several people in my family suffer from this debilitating disease.  My dad was struggling with its effects until a new drug became available and has worked wonders for him!  Thanks to the efforts of the Arthritis Foundation there is continued research into this disease!

One of the big events for North Texas (and nation) coming up this year is the Walk to Cure Arthritis! You should check it out!

As you can see Arthritis doesn’t just happen to “old people”! What causes do you like to give back to?
