I currently donate £2 a month to wwf, it was mostly because i wanted the toy :(

 

anywhoo, i want to donate to a human cause, mostly so i can feel as though I'm helping without having to put much effort.

 

So who do you guys donate too?

 

was looking at the clinton foundation, mostly because it was a "leader" spearheading everything...

http://www.charitynavigator.org/

 

This system where you can see how the money is allocated,

and also how much top officials involved in the charity earn.

You can also search by charity type that is personally important to you. Good luck to you!

 

 

 

Personally I prefer to give to local organizations rather then global ones.  Less money is wasted on overhead.

I don't. I'm a friggin' misanthrope ahole.

 

Humble Bundle doesn't really count. I'd take part in that even if it said "for every cent you give the devil himself will punch a drunk to the moon, for fun".

Small change in supermarkets' boxes for whatever random cause doesn't either. I leave it there because euro cents are more heavy to carry around lest one's pocket be dangling along with the... shoelaces.

 

Also, teach a man to fish, et cetera.

I donate to the Wounded Warrior Project.

I'm not sure it's something non-U.S. citizens would like to support but as a military brat and defense contractor it hits close to home for me.

I donate time more than anything.  Normally helping out the community/area I live in.  Also, around holidays I donate a lot at stores where asked "would you like to donate money for so and so" when you pay.
