Thank you so much for continuing to be a part of Dig Deep!
This month's pick is OneFamily.ie. An organization that helps single-parent families in Ireland. I learned of this through a friend who gained so much from this organization when she was at the lowest point in her life. One Family helped her get to the amazing place she is now and continues to help her and her child. They do incredible things for so many families. Every bit of support they get, no matter how small, helps!
One Family aims to provide high-quality, much-needed services to the many different one-parent families in Ireland and the professionals working with them. They also work hard to ensure that one-parent families have a clear voice that is heard by policy and decision-makers.
Visit them on the web here:

To mark the International Day of Family, they are doing a fundraiser on May 15th, called Big Night In....check it out
The point of Dig Deep is, that as a group, we can change lives. I never actually know if anyone is giving to my charity picks, and I do hope that at the very least, I'm helping to bring awareness to you all about organizations that you may not have heard of before. But this only works if we all take 5 minutes and donate, even if it's a Dollar or a Euro - there are over 250 of us, that's a lot of money! No donation is too small.
Please keep the suggestions for future picks coming in - I am looking for small charities where the donations actually go directly to those in need (rather than to overhead/PR/etc). They also need to have web presence and the ability to donate online.
Please suggest Dig Deep [A Charity Experiment] to your Facebook friends.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and taking part in this experiment - it starts with YOU.
