I am so very thankful for all the non-profits I get to work with through Schipul. These organizations are truly trying to change the world and â€œdo good.â€ Â There is no better honor than to get to work with organizations that are admired for their passion and curiosity. Â Because of these organizations, I am inspired to care a little more.
A few non-profits that I am super thankful to know are:
I am thankful for The Myelin project and the difference they make.Â They are a small group of people making a huge difference in the world. Everyday, no matter the gloom, they are continually devoted to curing some of the most devastating diseases in the world. Â Working with The Myelin project is my greatest pleasure.
The Myelin Projectâ€™s mission is aimed at funding the research to find a cure for demyelinating diseases, such as the leukodystrophies which are genetic and multiple sclerosis which is acquired.

I am thankful for The Childrenâ€™s Museum of Houston. Â They are a place that welcomes any child and creates an experience so grand, it is unforgettable. Â Â I am so grateful to be part of such a wonderful place for children to learn, grow and be inspired. Â The love they have for children and learning is beyond anything else I have ever seen. Â You see this when you go to the Museum and witness the excitement on a childâ€™s face. Children are our future and The Childrenâ€™s Museum of Houston totally gets that. I am thankful I get to work with them on their web presence and marketing. I love Shannon Gilliam and Henry Yao. Itâ€™s people like CM Houston who make the world a better place.
I am even more grateful knowing that I have been blessed with a healthy child that will grow up knowing The Children’s Museum of Houston as her playground.

The Houston Zoo is also tops on my list of non-profits to thank. Â I thank them for their love of animals and their passion to make the Houston Zoo one of the coolest places to see in Houston.Â I am thankful they are leaders in conservation. Itâ€™s the things that seem little to us, but are completely important and vital to our lives as human beings. They are rock stars at saving the earth one frog at a time.
The Houston Zoo gives residents and visitors from afar a place to escape the concreteness and see animals we would never get to see otherwise. Thank you Houston Zoo for being a wonder.
