What is the charitable cause you are most passionate about and why?

Oh, I wish I could pick one. My husband and I have a discussion and limit to four each year. We are generally most passionate about: veteran's mental health support, as they were willing to make the ultimate sacrifice; preservation of public wild areas, because everyone should have access to nature; reproductive rights, because we chose to be parents but we are in no place to judge the situations of others; and legal support for human rights violations because not everyone facing injustice has the means to be represented.

Why do you give through the CFC?

I love that I can make a decision at the beginning of the year and it continues to make a difference throughout the year.

How do contributions through the CFC help your cause?

CFC has the power to generate positive change through hundreds of thousands of donations.
