I love this song, it's a great tango song. I would love to hear a guitar instrumental to it for a flamenco number.

It's our duty to advocate for those who can't advocate for themselves.

Why do you give? Who do you give to? #GivingTuesday  

Did you know that Mental Health America of Greater Tarrant County provides free counseling, free wellness recovery action planning classes, free acceptance and commitment therapy, and has the ONLY LOSS (Local Outreach to Suicide Survivors) Team in Texas?

We are able to provide these services, at not charge to the community, becuase of supporters LIKE YOU.

I give because I want to help people live better, more productive lives.
Established in 2012, Giving Tuesday brings together global charities, families, community centers, students, and more for a day of giving. This year, Giving Tuesday will be held on Tuesday, December 3. +Google+ will provide an opportunity for individuals to give back - either by directly donating to nonprofits or by purchasing goods for good - by leveraging the Shoppable Hangouts app to provide interactive opportunities for charities to raise money and for brands to innovatively sell their products. For 12 hours, Google+ is partnering with +Mashable for #GivingTuesday to feature over 24 charities and brands that users can support. The Hangout will be streamed from the +Giving Tuesday page.

The Google+ Hangout-a-thon will create exciting and meaningful moments, encouraging viewers to get involved in every day philanthropy. Viewers also have the option to directly donate to the guest nonprofits and learn more about other #GivingTuesday participating partners. As social giving becomes a major innovation for fundraising, Google is providing a new opportunity for charitable organizations to share their stories in innovative and unique ways.
