So this is something I try to do once a year. I added it to my list to make sure I remembered to do it. In the past I have donated to Dumb Friends League and probably will again at a different time of this year.
However, I really wanted to donate to something else for this task. Make it something that I would not normally do.
So I found this website: Charity Navigator thinking it would make it easier to find a charity that was worthy and really needed this money. This was not the case. It actually made the choice much, much harder.
I cannot even decide between the categories:
Let alone decide once in those categories. But I set a standard for myself and just had to push through and do something.
So I looked through the “popular topics” that need money and found a popular charity called Direct Relief:
Direct Relief is a humanitarian aid organization, active in all 50 states and more than 80 countries, with a mission to improve the health and lives of people affected by poverty or emergencies.
