charities update

Filed under: — adrian @ 5:32 pm

Thanks for the good suggestions. Here’s who I ended up donating too.

  • local 1/4 Catholic Charities CYO, San Francisco Archdiocese They provide a variety of good services to people in San Francisco and San Mateo (my) county.
  • national 1/4 American Red Cross national disaster relief fund. I think the Red Cross does really good work and you never know when the next disaster will be.
  • international 1/4 African Medical and Research Fund I like that they’re doing research into malaria, which is a major problem, in addition to many other major problems (HIV/ AIDS, TB, safe water, etc.)
  • international 1/4 Compassion International A suggestion of Colin last year. Worthwhile services for impoverished children in the developing world.
  • international 1/4 South Africa Development Fund They sponsor a wide variety of worthwhile programs of all different sorts in my ancestral home.

Yup, that’s 5/4. I ended up finding more worthwhile charities than I originally was going to donate to so, I just ended donating more.

    yay Red Cross! You never do know when/where the next disaster will be. Good thinking. And those others are great choices. It warms my hippie heart.
