    There are so many worthy charities but this year my main charity is the wounded warrior project

  • Michael

    My favorite charity is Christian Relief Fund. Since almost everyone connected with the fund are volunteers (including me) virtually all the money goes directly to the kids.

  • Smik808

    My favorite charity is Safe Horizon in NYC. They do a lot of great work helping domestic violence victims rebuild their lives after leaving their abusers, finding them housing, jobs and counseling. They also have a fantastic program for homeless teens in the city called StreetWorks.

    Wounded warrior project. I think the name speaks for itself.

  • Anonymous

    Every month I donate to WNYC, New York’s outlet of National Public Radio. I work in entertainment television & I realize that so many popular music & shows can be deliciously mindless, so I make sure to do what I can to support the informative radio stations I listen to when I’m on my way back and forth to work. I also donate monthly to the Innocence Project, which supports DNA testing for prisoners so victims and the wrongly incarcerated can both get justice.

    Happy holidays and congratulations on a great year!

    My favorite charity is the Upstate Animal Rescue Foundation of South Carolina, where we adopted our dog, Abby. There are unfortunately so many dogs in the South that are euthanized, (especially in Andseron County, SC), and this rescue group tries to save as many as they can from high-kill county shelters and expedite their adoption to loving homes all over the country. They operate on a shoe string budget and rely heavily on donations and volunteer support.

    Although it is hard for me to pick just one of my charities, I think an immigration one, such as La Comunidad Hispana or Lutheran Immigrant and Refugee Services is most apropos for this site- people who travel in conditions that make coach look palacial!
    Happy Holidays TPG!

    My favorite charity is Hope’s Promise which creates home orphanages within international countries that have closed their borders to international adoptions but still have many young orphans that need homes.

  • At1Dutch

    Clefts are a major problem in developing countries where there are millions of children who are suffering with unrepaired clefts. Most cannot eat or speak properly, aren’t allowed to attend school or hold a job. SmileTrain provides free cleft lip and palate surgery for hundreds of thousands of children around the world.

  • Lucas G

    Charity Water is based on the belief that everyone deserves clean drinking water. They build wells in developing countries and give you photos and GPS coordinates to track your donations. Very cool.

  • Sybil Schwartz

    My favorite charity is Seton Hill University National Catholic Holocaust Center which is dedicated to addressing religious and racial intolerance through education. It has been active for over 20 years in combating prejudices of people throughtout the world. Started by Sister Gemmna Del Ducca to educate Christians regarding anti-Semetism the program has received national and internal acclaim from individuals in Israel, the Vatican and United States. This organization has raised the consciousness of many throughout the world to be the guardian/advocate of minorities who have been abused/isolated.

  • Acta

    Doctors Without Borders

  • Michael Hogue

    Most of the time, my special charity is myself but I always set aside money for Ronald McDonald House when I am in a Mickey D’s, the red buckets of the Salvation Army during the Christmas season and definitely a toy for the Toys for Tots drive.
