Every year, Georgia Gives Day raises money for good causes throughout the state. The initiative, created by the Georgia Center for Nonprofits, encourages those whose lives have been touched by nonprofits (that’s pretty much everybody if you think about it) to donate to the cause of their choice. As of this writing, more than $1.7 million has been raised today for causes. Not sure which organization to donate to? The Georgia Gives website can help you choose, just click on the kind of cause you’d like to support. There are options relating to the arts, animals, kids, economic development, the environment, religion, disaster relief, homelessness, education, health, human rights, science and technology, and more. Find your favorite nonprofit and spread the love! What cause are you supporting today?


It’s about to start getting really cold here in Atlanta. With the holidays on their way and the chilly weather finally arriving, it’s the perfect time for hot cocoa. I love making it as an after school treat once in a while. What’s better than coming home from school, throwing down the backpacks, tearing of the jackets, and enjoying some hot cocoa. Mmmmm! What I love about this recipe (and the kids don’t even know) is that it’s actually pretty good for them.  Here’s what’s in it. >>
