~ Think Before You Donate ~


I'm not sure if you've seen this or not. Amazing info about some organizations and the salaries!  I donate to two Hispanic ladies that clean for my kids.  They've become like family to me.  They are SO appreciative it almost brings me to tears at times. Really brings back awareness too at how blessed we are!

  3. For the past 15 years I've curbed my
    donations to only "St. Jude"...
    I guess being a mom has helped me
    make such a decision. I have three
    very healthy children and very
    grateful.
    Good Post

  4. We give to a single mom. She's then able to either use it, or sell it to get what she needs for her family.
    Any manly items are given to our lawn crew. They work so hard and appreciate everything so much. This way I know someone is getting the full benefit.
    Thanks for the info, Pat!

  6. Thank you for bringing this up. Many with big hearts donate thinking that all organizations do the right thing. Years ago, I was shocked and hurt to find that several we gave to were turning very little over to the cause that was dear to us. We can now easily check, like you have done, and give where our money will really be a help.

  7. I am so careful with charitable donations. There are too many scams out there, plus I don't like my money being diverted for "other uses". xo

  13. I donate to our local Good Will and I belong to a club, and we get together and help a needy family.

    I just don't send a check anymore.

  14. I think it's obnoxious how so many corporations bully their employees into giving to the United Way.

    We donate to UCP because we have a daughter with CP. At least 85% of proceeds go towards their services.

    Great post!

    xo,
