Being charitable...


A friend of mine posted this on FaceBook today.  I am tired of getting these "post to support blah blah blah" type messages pop up on FB.  They do nothing, sorry...they don't.  They are not going to cure cancer simply because you repost a picture of a baby with a flower....this, however, can make a difference.

And BTW, The Wounded Warrior Project gets money from me every payday via my CCC contributions.

I've been asked to copy and paste a note of support to my wall for those in need. I'm sure those reposting such things mean well, but I have a better idea. Instead, here are some links to charities that you can donate to to *actually* help those that need help...

Wounded Warrior Projecthttp://www.woundedwarriorpr

The USO
http://www.uso.org/
St. Mary's Food Bank
http://www.firstfoodbank.org/
The Make-A-Wish Foundation
http://www.wish.org/
The American Red Cross
http://www.redcross.org/
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
http://www.stjude.org/
Toys for Tots

http://www.toysfortots.org/

All of these charities take online donations in any amount. And these are just a few. If you have a buck in your bank account, get out you wallet and spend 5 minutes to help others. Prior to posting this, in light of the recent hurricane problems in the south, I hit up The Red Cross with $10.

Pick your charity, and give. It doesn't have to be listed here. Then *after* donating share this post, and get others to make a real difference. A few minutes out of your day, a dollar or two from your checking account, both of which they can use, neither of which you'll miss. Do it.
