Mary Beth That's great. Thanks for sharing. I didn't know about it and will look into it especially for next holiday season. I agree with you it is nice to help directly. I support 2 that are far away: - I am a Pathfinder member of Guiding Eyes for the Blind in Yorktown Heights, New York . They accept blind clients that other guide dog schools turn down, due to age or multiple handicaps - they charge no fees and receive no govt. funding. After reading "I am Listening with One Ear Broken" and the rescue work done at Hollow Creek Farm , in South Carolina,, I decided to donate to them. They rescue dogs, cats, horses, deer, goats, pigs, chickens, etc. They also do education programs and provide training.

TaZoR I love because you get to send things directly to a soldier. They list little things they need like soap, blankets, toothbrushes or sometimes a soldier will ask for a letter because another soldier never gets their name called at mail call. On the site, you pick a name and the list of things they need comes up. Mail to Afghanistan is same as domestic rates....I just really appreciate what they do, how much they sacrafice and I prefer to help mine.

msvette2u We have a local hospice benefit store (2nd hand) and I donate and shop there.
We donate to Billy Graham Association, especially when disasters strike.
My personal "charity work" is all these dogs we rescue.

onyx'girl I'm a youth group leader so do quite a bit of service work with them, we try to do something at least every few months for the community residents.
I went on a mission trip to Nashville in July and worked for a week in the national headquarters of Soles4Souls. When we returned home, we began collecting shoes for them.

This is a great pay it forward inspirational group I just posted about it on my fb wall tonight~ fb page:
and Jaydens story is here:
Paying it forward 'Jayden-style' continues in Midland, Saginaw, Bay City as youth's birthday approaches |
I think paying it forward randomly is so easy and really does make a difference!

Lauri & The Gang 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.

ladyfreckles Not murdering people who irritate me.

No no, I'm joking. I get a lot of joy out of volunteering at a horse rescue.

Good_Karma I donate to my local library every year. It's a very small town, not much money, and the salaries are ridiculously low. I figure the hundred bucks I give them every year might buy a few extra books.

Kyleigh Every Friday I buy the person's coffee behind my in the drive thru.

At the holiday season I donate about 5-6 quilts (depends on how many ( got done) to a senior's residence. And I crochet about 100 scarves and matching hats for kids.

Everything was all dropped off last weekend ... I LOVE LOVE LOVE to see the looks on people's face when they see the handmade stuff.
