What charity do y'all give to?


#1

It’s the holiday season and I know this is a time where a lot of people find it in them to donate to various charities. I know that some charities are more in name than in practice, so I was hoping to generate a list of some good ones so we can avoid the bad ones.

Also, a heads up to anyone who uses Amazon to shop (which, let’s be honest, is all of us): Use smile.amazon.com. Amazon donates a portion of the sale to various charities of your choice!


#2

I generally give through all the video game-related charities. So if I look at the Humble stuff + charity marathons It’s a lot of Doctors Without Borders, cancer research, pencils for promise, Wikipedia (insofar that counts), Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, etc.


#3

World Wildlife Fund mostly.


#4

Mostly local nonprofits. Make the Road has local chapters all over the States (they focus on immigrant rights), and I also donate to my local women’s shelter.


#5

The local food bank and a couple of area nonprofits.


#6

I try to consistently donate blood to our local blood center. (Not plasma for money or anything like that, I donate whole blood that goes to local hospitals.) It’s not a charity, but it’s really the only way I have to give anything right now.
