The holiday season is full of giving — to family and friends, as well as those in need. The #MonthlyMission call for the New Year is to make giving back part of your life year-round.

Take some time at the end of this year to consider the causes you're passionate about and those who need a helping hand. How can you embed helping others as an ongoing part of your life?

A unique way to give back based on your schedule is by becoming a Mayo Clinic Champion or a Mentor on the Mayo Clinic Connect online community.

Share our living organ donor stories, messages and facts with your network.
