You are given 10.000$ to donate to a charity of your choice. You can not split up the money or give it to to family/ friends in need. Where does the money go to? What do you think will be the most effective?

I'm not sure, but I'd give it to a small organisation that does good things for children. Cultural activities and such. First of all it's important (theatre, dance, street parties, books, sports, whatever) and 2nd because I'd hate the money to disappear into "administration costs". You know what I mean. But - oh well- there's so much more one could do. There's probably not enough money to fix it all, is there?

  • Our local Crisis Pregnancy Center. They do SO much good work with moms and babies, they are a Christian based organization, and offer incredible alternatives to abortion. Our church supports them, we do, also, and if I had $10,000 that HAD to go to one charity, that's the one it would be!
