Ramming ill-tempered opinions down other people's throats since 2005
I always wonder about the reliability of charities, and what they actually spend their donation $'s on. See Wyclef Jean and his Haiti foundation.Good info.
i'm wary of anything that advertises a bit too much.
Awwww. Thanks, RW.
Also, locally-based and locally-active charities with a narrow mandate (a battered women's shelter, soup kitchen, free clinic, etc.) ideally run by (or with the help of) people you know and trust. The fewer hands the money has to go through, the better.
Excellent list. My add: your local chapter of the American Red Cross -- local chapters, contrary to a lot of misconceptions, don't get funding from the national American Red Cross, so they really need local support. Ninety-one cents of every buck donated goes to humanitarian services and programs (as opposed to admin).Thanks for the "post your cause here" space, RW
