Here’s the breakdown of charities and portions of total money that I gave:
- Local 1/4 Boys and Girls Club of San Francisco
- National 1/4 American Red Cross
- International 1/4 to African Medical and Research Foundation; 1/4 South African Development Fund
I don’t think any of these are perfect, but they all do good work. Thanks for the suggestions earlier. In the running for next time are Catholic Charities CYO, Archdiocese of San Francisco, Compassion International, and Worldvision.
note: Those of you who know me probably realize that I’m not writing about this because I want to draw attention to myself or anything like that. I’m not (or I hope I’m not). Perhaps you will see this and think about charities if you have the means.
note 2: It’s nearing my birthday and I’m thinking it might be a good tradition to give to charities every year around this time.
