I have always admired Danny Thomas*. Not because of his celebrity status. But because of the St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital and the fact that people who take their sick children there don't have to pay a bill. In that regard, with respect to charities, when donating money (or other resources if I have them), I tend to look for works that deal with helping children - particularly children living in desperate poverty or suffering from serious illnesses. I don't have a specific organization or group to name. I look for an organization with that type of mission and do research to learn more about the specific work. * Amos Muzyad Yakhoob Kairouz (1912 – 1991), aka Danny Thomas.

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other deadly diseases.

We have Goodwill and Salvation Army here in America. I used to put money in the pot around Christmas time for the Salvation Army collections for the poor. But when it comes to donating clothing, I usually give via Goodwill.

@Kehsiba - I am usually on the computer on Sundays unless I'm watching something online for relaxation. When you asked this question I was doing very much. Right now it's Monday. I just woke up and it's another day at my home-based office.

When I had a 9 to 5 job with a steady paycheck, I recall donating a portion of my biweekly earnings went to an organization called United Way.

Most of my donations go through my church. I routinely give to the local food banks, and make lap robes for the local nursing homes. I also participate in a Bible a month group. They provide Bibles in different languages throughout the world. I wish I could do more.

You never feel like you've done enough, do you?
