Choosing a Good Charity

I choose a good charity by having a local and personal touch. Are they helping my neighbors? Your local church should be a great place to help your community. A good organization should give most of what you give to those in need and not to their pay checks. Each organization is required to tell you a break down of where the finances are going. Administration costs should be very low so that the people that are in need, get the most benefit.


Donate your old clothes. Buy an extra can of food at the grocery store to give away and don't forget about the hurting pets, they can use a helping hand also. Local food banks and soup kitchens are great. If your neighbor is going through a rough time, give food cards, or pay an electric bill.

I find that when you help those who are hurting, it brings great joy into your life and will come around to you if ever a need comes up in your own life. It is always good to help a neighbor.

I completely agree. Why shouldn't those of us who have an embarrassment of riches - whether financial or otherwise - refuse to give where it's needed most?


That, of course, is in our own neighborhoods.
