Besides some of the local animal rescues here I also like to donate to Food For The Soul, which is a homeless shelter and soup kitchen. They feed about 5000 people between Christmas Eve and Christmas. We just donated 25 turkeys and hams to them today.
Favorite act of kindness -- spending an afternoon with a shut-down, scared, depressed shelter dog, giving it some outside time, some cuddle time, a bath--anything to raise its spirits and help it get adopted.
I also financially support the charity that raises money for our local shelter. My vet and I just partnered to give a shelter dog heartworm treatment through this charity (I paid for the immiticide, he provided the treatment, and the charity selected the dog).
I sponser a 14 (almost 15) year old boy through World Vision, it's a monthly fee but well worth it. He wants to be a dentist and I'm so thrilled to see him dreaming of succeeding and choosing a career
As for acts of kindness, anything that's needed at the moment

I found a group called 2hands (One Hand Helping Another... 2Hands) and from there I got the name of a mother and 3 yr old son that were having a really hard time this Christmas. I went out and spent a bunch on toys, clothes, drawing stuff (he likes to draw) and education items (flash cards and such). I'll be wrapping everything tonight and we will deliver it tomorrow.
I prefer to help someone directly instead of just giving money to a big group.
