My Favorite Charities

Service and charity are very important to me. i feel that we should all share what we have with those less fortunate, with our fellow humans. No matter if that’s $5 once in a while, $30/month, or a bequest of thousands of dollars.

Be sure to investigate your charity for how they spend their money and how they operate. Charity Navigator is a fabulous and important resource. http://www.charitynavigator.org/
