3 Ways to Give Back this Holiday Season
Giving back is one of the fundamentals of my business! My beautiful friend, Chante from Forever Taeken Weddings and Events, is who I have to thank for encouraging me and inspiring me to do so!
Over the holidays is the PERFECT time for us to give back. It’s a season of giving and for being thankful for the amazing things we’ve been blessed with in our lives!
So today I wanted to share with you 3 Ways to Give Back this Holiday Season!!! All of these charities have a special place in my heart!!! Keep reading below to find out how YOU can give back!!!
The HiCaliber Horse Rescue!
My top favorite out of the 3 Ways to Give Back this Holiday Season is supporting the HiCaliber Horse Rescue here in Southern California!
Growing up as a little girl I practically grew up on the back of my horse! My grandpa was the one who first introduced me to the love of horses before I could even walk! Every time my grandparents would babysit me my grandpa would bring me outside with him, morning and night, to help him do the horse chores! It grew from there to when I got my first pony when I was 5, to horse showing at local shows, riding with friends, working cattle with the horses, and riding as often as I could in general!
I was in LOVE with horses! Everything about them and so much more! My horse got me through a lot of hard times growing up! They’re the BEST listeners and they gave me a place where I could go to think, calm down, and get re-inspired in my life!
So when Chante encouraged me to start giving back with my business, I knew I wanted to support a horse rescue that saved the lives of these beautiful animals to give them a second chance at life. Much like my horses gave me the chance to be free in my life!

Toys for Tots
The Toys for Tots is another charity that I wanted to really highlight in the 3 Ways to Give Back this Holiday Season!
The Toys for Tots is run through the Marine Corps Reserve to collect new, unwrapped toys from the months of October-December each year to distribute as Christmas gifts to children who are less fortunate in the local communities!
It’s meant to help these children experience the joy of Christmas when their families are financially unable to. It’s a message of hope, joy, and being thankful for life’s blessings!
The Toys for Tots holds a special place in my heart because every year before my husband joined the Marine Corps, one day a year at the end of July we would go on the annual Toys for Tots bike run in my hometown of Marshall, MN! Every year we’d donate toys to the Toys for Tots and we’d ride motorcycles all day with 500-700 motorcyclists to raise money for them!!!
I simply LOVE that they bring that Christmas joy to so many kids who wouldn’t have had that otherwise! It warms my heart!
