I was thinking earlier today that I don’t give enough money to charity. So what are good charities?

I was thinking of splitting it 3 or 4 ways:

  • Local. possibly Catholic Charities of Santa Clara County or Catholic Charities CYO of San Francisco
  • National. Almost definitely Amerian Red Cross
  • One or two international charities. At least one with a focus in (Southern) Africa. Possibly Zisize which a family friend works for

Any suggestions? Favorite charities? Who efficiently does good work helping people less fortunate?

    My wife and I sponsor a child through Compassion International and we’ve found that to be a rewarding experience. They evidently don’t operate in South Africa, but you can pick a child from other African countries like Tanzania, Rwanda, and Uganda.

    To add to Colin’s comment, I’m very pro World Vision. They do A LOT of work in Africa. Check out their webpage, it’s excellent. Here’s to joyful giving! (2 Corinthians 9:6-8 I don’t know much about the context, but I thought of “God loves a cheerful giver” as I was writing this post, so I looked it up.)
