This Week’s Happy Hour Guest: Carmen Westbrook, Aina Giving

This week’s guest is Carmen Westbrook from Aina Giving. Carmen cofounded Aina Giving with fellow milspouse Kristin when she was looking for ways to volunteer her time for global causes.

Enter Aina, they vet nonprofits and nongovernmental organizations from around the world; then they partner with them so that anyone can do a simple activity to provide them support, such as making no sew blankets or stuffing pencil pouches. They’ve even created activities designed for summer playdates because as working moms, they get that summer is hard.

You can connect with Aina Giving through their website, Facebook page and Facebook group.
