  • I generally donate to the local home for unwed moms and the project (both through our Catholic church) which helps homeless mothers and children. I don't know why really, but I have a special place in my heart for these groups.

  • I donate to the shelters that take in women and children. I also am big on the food banks, and just about anything for the schools, libraries, and anything else that helps people learn.

  • I LOVE Kiva.org and Women for Women International and Heifer. The first two connect the giver with the recipient and it's an incredible feeling. LOVE to empower women.

  • If I donate its to childrens charities like St Judes or those charities that you can give a buck too at the store(usually every Spring there is a drive)and you get a clover or balloon,etc. I will give to those.

    Right now I cant really donate money but if I can donate clothes to a local place or canned goods...then Ill do that.

    Why do I give? Because I like helping out, especially children, if at all possible. Pay It Forward....
