Today is Giving Tuesday. One of the many days we've given a name to as we start the holiday season. If you're looking to give this December, might I suggest giving to CASA, Citizens Against Spouse Abuse? Whether you only have a little to give, or your cup runneth over, they need your help.

CASA needs supplies all this month. Supplies include paper products like paper towels, toilet paper, bath towels, pillows, and more. What I like about their list of items is, it doesn't take a lot of money to help them out. You can add a couple of items to your grocery list and just drop them off at CASA. Or if you have a little more to donate you can fill up a whole cart and drop it off.

Of course, they're not just looking for stuff. If you'd like to donate cash, you can donate money to CASA on their website here. You can make a one-time donation, or even help them out with a recurring donation throughout the year. Donations of $100 or more are eligible for a 70 percent tax credit on your Missouri State Taxes.

There are also a couple of other ways you can help too. When you're doing your holiday shopping on, use Smile and set Citizens Against Spousal Abuse as the charity and CASA will get the generated donations from shopping that way. There's also a way to "round up" and donate to CASA through Walmart's Registry for Good. Just type in a Sedalia zip code and search for CASA and you can set that up.

If you're looking to make a donation of "stuff" to CASA here's a look at the items they need:

  • Toilet Paper
  • Paper Towels
  • Bath Towels/Wash Clothes
  • Paper Plates and Cutlery
  • Pillows
  • Shampoo/Conditioner
  • New Hair Brushes
  • Elastic Hair Ties
  • Cleaning Supplies
  • Trash Bags
  • Dish Soap
  • Aluminum Foil

If you're unaware of CASA's mission, it "is to empower domestic and sexual violence survivors to regain control of their lives through education, advocacy, and coordination of community resources." You can learn more about CASA on its website here. I hope you'll consider CASA as worthy as a little bit of hope this holiday season.

LOOK: Things from the year you were born that don't exist anymore

The iconic (and at times silly) toys, technologies, and electronics have been usurped since their grand entrance, either by advances in technology or breakthroughs in common sense. See how many things on this list trigger childhood memories—and which ones were here and gone so fast you missed them entirely.
