There are a number of Charity Organizations, like World Vision, Red Cross, which help people in need and in desasters. I like donating to those Organiztions when they are raising funds for helping people suffering from natural desasters like storms, earth quakes, and the like. Have you also been donating to Charity Organizations ?

hi greenline. i donate to a charity organization one named udhavum karangal. i generally donate clothes, study materials. sometimes during the festivals my dad donates money to help the children. it helps them a lot. i feel in this way we can help them out at least to some extent, if not totally. i think each and everyone should try to help these organizations as much as they can. thanks for sharing. happy mylotting.

Yes i am active member of CRY (Child Rights and You) and donate yearly for the children there. I am responsible for the complete look after for one child and for only education for the second child. It feels excellent doing something for these needy children, last year i donated some small outfits for these children also....

Like many of us if I see a collecting tin then I will donate some coinage to the charity,as long as it is a charity that I am familiar with,but I do have certain favourites among the charities and those who help with animal resue are high priority to me.I am an animal lover and always have been,and I sponsor a few animal sanctuaries in a monthly basis,and I know that the gift that I am able to give them,though very small is enhanced every month by the gift aid policy introduced by the government some time ago,so I feel that my tiny donations do make a small difference.I am not saying that I value animal above humans,but that animals are always at the mercy of humans,so they are vulnerable.There are charities that are particulary dear to me,like the Heart foundation and Cancer research,they do a great job,and the people who constantly fund raise for them deserve a madal .There should be far more names appearing in the Honours list,some of those who tirelessly raise money for others,often im sure they are forgotten,not that they do it for the glory of it,but they do deserve to be rewarded.The London marathon is a classic example of the diversity of charity fundraising,every colour and creed,every background that you can think of come to run in the London marathon,and that twenty six miles must be agonising for some,I applaud them wholeheartedly.
