Letter to the editor: Give to nonprofits to make an impact
Letter to the Editor generic

Dear Editor:

Conscious Giving released the third edition of The Conscious Giving Guide. The Conscious Giving Guide brings together conscious givers to give intentionally to make an impact.

This year’s guide will come alive through a video series and The Conscious Giver’s Podcast. The featured guests, Dr. Christopher King, Chair of the Department of Health Systems at Georgetown University; Lisa Medellin, Director of Programs at Georgia Healthcare Foundation; and Dr. Traci Acklin, a pediatrician practicing in rural West Virginia, are experts in rural health and health disparities with others sharing their personal family stories. This topic was inspired by founder Tysus Jackson’s personal experience caregiving for her mother in rural south Georgia.

“My mother’s stage IV pancreatic cancer diagnosis was devastating to our family. The health system in a rural community was challenging to navigate for our family, and I can’t imagine what it is like for vulnerable community members.”

The Conscious Giving Guide is inviting people to give to three nonprofits, Diversity Health in Hinesville, Georgia, Think Kids West Virginia, and Cancer Support Community. These nonprofits are doing impactful work to improve health care outcomes for families, children, and the most vulnerable in their communities.

“My mom was a conscious giver and approached life with what she could give. On January 1st, 2022, my mom would have celebrated her 70th birthday. I am asking the conscious giving community to make a $70, $7, or $700 gift in her memory.”

To view The Conscious Giving Guide and make 100% tax-deductible donations, please visit www. Featured guest interviews are available on the Conscious Giving YouTube channel and on the podcast in the next few weeks.

Tysus Jackson’s mom, Ora, was a former Hinesville resident.
