Have a question for other moms like you? CafeMom Answers is the mom-only place to get answers to your questions about parenting, your home, and more.
Do you go to the same places every year, or base it on current events? We do donations every year to Child's Play, which donates specific categories of toys to children's hospitals, and a local shelter. Then I read things like this, about Hurricane Sandy kids writing Santa to ask him to help their parents with bills, or kids who don't even have coats, and wonder if we should've tried to split it up more.Answer Question

I donate to places that have over 80%of the donations going directly to the charity and not to administrative costs. These are a couple of sites I use to check. Sorry I can't make the links clickety on my mobile.
