What lesser known Charity do you think everyone should know about?

Everyone knows about charities like Susan G Komen, but what about the little ones? They make huge differences to those they help. Local, National or Inter-National Charities of all sizes are making huge differences, but there are so many out there that people simply don't know about... SO, what are your favorite "lesser known" charities and what do they do? Who do they help? And of course, how can we donate?

  • thanks :) ive been wanting to do something for a few months and i really feel my heart wants to help with sex trafficking. my friends moved to thailand and started working with a christian org. that helps build homes for orphans and mothers with kids.  ive helped there but now they came back so im glad there may be another way to help.
