I love supporting charities. I was wondering how many of you out there do what you can to help them. Which are you favorite? What types of things do you do to support them?Some of my favorites are Susan B Anthony Breast Cancer. I do their 5k walk every year and try to donate my time as much as possible. Also the Ronald McDonald House. I have family who that directly helped. The charity I support most is defintely Change for the Children. It's a mixture of organizations Make a Wish, Juvinille Diabeties, Nothing but Net, St Judes Hopsital Research (this place saved my brothers life when he had to have open heart surgery as a child), The Speical Olympics. The organization was started by the Jonas Brothers which is great because they help get a lot of kids envolved in the process. The picture below is the charities emblum. I try to do walks/runs and car washes or whatever I can do to help. Soemtimes its not about the money you give but the time you share. Do you have any inspirting stories of charity in your community?

I don’t have a great deal of time to give but my family and I are sponsoring a little girl from Uganda. Her name is Hajara, she is eight years old which is close to my daughter’s age and we keep in touch via mail; we receive regular reports from World Vision along with photographs and we can see how she’s doing. We cannot afford much but it is nice to make a difference for someone who needs it; it’s a great feeling. Other charities I support are the R.S.P.C.A., The Salvation Army who help a lot of people here and The Red Cross.
