Lisa contributes to and is involved in many philanthropic efforts. Here is a partial list of some of the causes she supports. She hopes you, too, will find it in your heart to donate or volunteer to these wonderful organizations or others that may be more personal to you.
Molly Bears -
Lisa discovered Molly Bears when contacted by one of her readers and told of this wonderful cause. Through Molly Bears, families who have suffered infant loss can reach out and apply for a stuffed bear, made to the exact weight of the lost child. The bears are individually hand crafted to the family's specifications and provide much-needed comfort to those who have lost their babies.

Raphael House - Lisa believes that everyone should feel safe and that there should be a haven from abuse, especially when the abuse comes from a family member, those who are supposed to provide safety and love rather than pain or terror. To that end, she fully supports Raphael House in Portland, Oregon and urges anyone who suffers any kind of emotional or physical trauma to seek help. For those of you who are lucky enough to be safe, please donate or volunteer at a shelter near you.
