“Buying turkeys for homeless shelters at Thanksgiving, delivering meals to patients in hospice care, donating any spare change in their pocket to those asking for it, and performing quiet acts of grace—be it a hug, a smile, or a pat on the back to show ones in need that they would be alright.”Meghan Markle on The Tig

“This is what I grew up seeing, so that is what I grew up being,” a young adult with a social consciousness to do what I could, and to, at the very least, speak up when I knew something was wrong.”- Meghan Markle on The Tig
