From Thanksgiving gridlock to awkward expectations, the holiday season can get stressful for so many of us.

At Cloud Giants, Be Thankful has been one of our core values since Kelly founded the company four years ago. During this time of year especially, it feels important to put holiday stress in perspective and show our gratitude.

Today marks Giving Tuesday and there are many wonderful nonprofits holding online fundraising campaigns to encourage us all to give back to our communities during the holiday season.

A few of our nonprofit partners have active #GivingTuesday campaigns. Let’s help get them to their goals!

Donations of all sizes are welcome, even small ones can have a big impact when we all pull together.

Children's Flight of Hope

Children’s Flight of Hope provides air transportation for children to access specialized medical care. Both commercial and private options are available, and through a partnership with American Airlines, CFOH is able to support international requests.  All children must be medically stable as CFOH is not an air ambulance service and no medical support is provided during the flight.
