I have to find the best possible for the circumstances. Thank you <3 [/quote] I no longer donate one dime to any charity.When I donate I find someone that needs help and put the money in their hand.I found out during the tornado outbreaks that most the money donated never actually goes to the people needing it.Sure things get donated to them but when you have nothing and starting over cash in hand helps the person the most.A charity wont do that and the outrageous amount that goes to management is unreal. http://www2.wnct.com/news/2010/feb/17/charity_watch-_how_much_of_your_donation_goes_to_-ar-21894/ [/quote] We had some terrible fires a couple years back and I decided not to donate to the national charity. I found a way to locate affected families and they made a list of what belongings were destroyed. People then pledged to buy them that item and deliver it to them. Families that were affected by this natural disaster still claim to have not seen any of the donated money. Where does it go? Then we had huge floods and I took to my local supermarket and just felt compelled to speak with the manager. He agreed to donate gift cards and put a donation table at the front of store. We then drove the goods 300kms to one affected town and actually got to see first hand the good it does. We then picked a home that was flooded and started cleaning up and giving a hand where it was needed. There is always someone in need, sometimes small things, sometimes large. It all makes a difference. Like the OP, I have a need to help others. I have spent some time figuring out the best way to give of myself. I have come to realise that the little things around the community make a huge difference, even just giving someone a smile. So I do the best I can and take the opportunities as they come. We sponsor through World Vision and I just have to trust that it's making a difference in the life of the child. I trust no other charity. :hf: [/quote]
Edited Again- Any donations have been returned. This is because I want to do this by the books. I am applying for an EIN and learning about the 501c. Thank you all! <3
I am still looking into charities, but I am forming my own.
I'll keep those who donated posted, and let them know when the documentations are completed.
Edited this post: Please check out the video! Like/comment! Leave a reply here.. Help me find the right outreach/charity program to donate too etc!
<3 Thank you all~
It's hard in this day and age...
I truly believe that we can all make a difference in many lives...
Check out the video! Like the video maybe?? :) Either way!
I ask you guys for a couple things... Very simple.. And takes a minute out of your day.
Please repost this song on your facebooks, twitters, mocospace, google+ etc.. Whatever social network possible. Please post why I am trying to do this...
People tell me I'll never make a difference.. That I'll never be able to help.
This is an opportunity to help create good for others..
- Thank you guys for checking this thread out..
Helping me take one more step to having a dream come true. -
I do expect some flaming from this.. but I will follow my path..
Doing the best I can..knowing... I can't control others. <3
:Edited: I will find a 100% new charity, don't think this entire time, I wasn't searching around every nook and kranny trying to figure out about them deeper then the surface.
