    so I'm thinking, alot of the VH group seem to be the charitable sort

    I visit www.charitynavigator.org to help me find financially responsible charities but I'm wondering what charities to do all find worthy of your hard earned dollars?

    Fer instance: I donate to or have donated to

    Honor Flight.. sends vets tp washington to see the monuments to their sacrifice
    American Red Cross
    Feed the Children
    Humane Society
    Heifer International..provides a sustainable income/food source in developing countries
    Appalachian voices..deals with problems having to do with air quality and environmental issues in the Appalachians
    The Exceller Fund and Friends of Ferdinand... thouroughbred race horse retirement funds
    Share our Strength...no kid hungry
    Children's Health fund
    Save the Music
    World Wildlife Fund
    Noah's wish..saves animals in natural disasters
    Civilian Marksmanship Program
    my local library

    Outside of your own retirement fund, what charities do you recommend?

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    For most of my life I've always been incredibly sympathetic to people who are paralyzed. My biggest fear is some crazy, fluke accident leaving paralyzed from the waist down, or god forbid, the neck down. Holy shit, if that's not hell on earth I don't know what is.

    If I had the means I would cut a sizeable check every year to help with paralysis research.

    Nationally, I donate to the "V" foundation. If some of you haven't seen Jim Valvano's speech at the ESPY's while he was dying of cancer, it's well worth a youtube search. One of the most inspiring speeches I've ever heard !



    Locally, I donate to the Stephanie Speilman fund for breast cancer. You guys might remember when her husband Chris quit pro football to stay home and care for her. She fought hard, beat it 3 or 4 times, but it kept returning. She finally succomed to it this past November after fighting it off and on for over a decade.Her foundation lives on.....

    Locally, I donate Germaine Lawrence, Inc (germainelawrence.org)

    They do phenomenal work with adolescent girls who have been seriously abused, to the extent they have such serious behavioral issues that they cannot function in society. Heart-breaking stories, both on the way in (sad) and on the way out (uplifting).

    that's a really good point....even if you are broke as a joke, you can usually free up a couple of hours to man a table at an event or walk a humane society dog

    I donate time and money to the Special Olympics. I feel for them, they got the short end of the stick right off the bat.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!
