Sometimes you want to help, but you don’t know where to begin. That’s why I’ve started this list of resources for you! Here you’ll find a catalog of non-profits and places where you can donate your time, money, and talent. All of these are my personal recommendations or they’ve been featured on Chicks Who Give a Hoot Interview Series. If you’re a non-profit doing amazing work or a for-profit who uses your brand’s selling power to change the world, we’d love to feature you too. Please email chickswhogiveahoot {at} yahoo {dot} com to be considered.


Meals 4 Health

Meals 4 Health is a core program of the Heimerdinger Foundation which aims to provide beautiful, delicious, and nourishing meals for people dealing with cancer under the guidance of adult mentor chefs and volunteers made possible by donations from local farms, farmers markets, grocery stores and producers. Meals are delivered by volunteer Delivery Angels free of charge to clients in the Nashville Community. Clients are supported by volunteer Client Liasons who visit them at home, help them understand how this food can make a difference in their healing, and stay in weekly communication to answer questions and make sure the food is working for them.
