Many years ago I made a commitment to myself to donate more money to charity than the previous year. While it is still a modest amount of money I have kept that commitment every year and I will do it again this year.
One charity I have donated to consistently to is So Others May Eat (SOME). I like SOME because their mission is not simply to feed people, it is to help them grow.
We help break the cycle of homelessness by offering services, such as affordable housing, job training, addiction treatment, and counseling, to the poor, the elderly and individuals with mental illness. – From SOME’s mission statement
You know the saying, “teach a person to fish and they eat for a lifetime.” I am against handing people fish, teach them to fish and that is something I can really support.
Help Me Pick a Charity
This year I have decided to add a new charity to my list. You, my readers, get to help me decide. Let me know about your favorite charity. Tell me how it is both for a good cause and how they are effective at serving that cause.
So here are the rules. Simply leave a comment with the reason you think I should donate to your favorite charity. The charity that receives the most compelling reason as to why they are the best will get a donation this year.
