Mostly just to the local food shelf. I've been donating semi-regularly for 6 years.

I also donate goods to epilepsy foundation and a local thrift store that runs another food shelf.

We dont have the cash but we donate time

Habitat for Humanity not as much time as we would like since the new build site is too far away from us, but we do what we can....and out mortgage goes to building more homes with them....

my oldest son works 3 days a week at the food bank.

My middle son is going to be starting volunteer time at the Humane Society when their new facility is done.

I've been donating to St. Jude's for as long as I can remember. There is nothing more awful in the entire world than kids with cancer, imo. It just breaks my heart to pieces. When I die I want my entire estate, everything I have, to go to them.

I donate all clothes, toys, and other goods to a local foundation that has a collection bin near my house;  they raise funds for people with special needs. Every year I also give food to the local food bank so they can make Christmas baskets.

I also believe in randomly paying it forward - from giving a set of almost new tires to my next door neighbor to buying flowers for my mom, just for fun.  Treating the girls at the office to coffee etc.

World Vision- we support a child in Zambia. Our first child aged out last year, so we have a new child now. We have donated for about 10 years now. 

Love Without Boundaries: They work in China giving surgeries to children so they can be adopted either domestically or internationally.

Half The Sky: They work solely in Chinese orphanages to provide clean water, blankets, formula and food. 

Local food bank, local library, Church drives for school and other outreach programs our Church funds, and our Karate dojo does a Thanksgiving basket drive every year. They have a kick a thon yearly for people to sponsor kids doing kicks ( 1000 or 500 depending on the age)..all proceeds go to buying turkeys and trimmings for baskets for needy families in the area. The baskets are $40 each and they raised enough to sponsor 300+ families last year alone.

Wounded Warrior Project, they have helped my husband and our family so much.


I also donate at least 3 wreaths each month to fellow caregivers, disabled vets & usually a charity that is going to raffle it off. I just had the honor of making a wreath for a WW2 vet.
