Charity time

When I was growing up, my parents always taught me to help the less fortunate. From collecting my clothes, shoes and toys and giving to the local orphanage and/or homeless shelters to donating money or volunteering with registered  foundations/charities.

If you’re in the mood to do some good for the people, environment (or animals) who need the most, maybe think about one of the organizations I’m going to point out below, something may interest you. Don’t forget, any help is welcome. Usually you can donate clothes, toys, shoes, furniture, hygiene products and/or money. It doesnt take much of your time and will be helping someone in need.  Not to mention the feels you get knowing you’re helping.


Project Health Children’s

“Micronutrient fortification programs are some of the most cost-effective ways to make sure that each child survives the early years of childhood, and reaches his or her full physical and cognitive abilities.”

“Project Healthy Children’s micronutrient food fortification brings life-supporting vitamins to some of the world’s chronically malnourished populations, reaching 55 million people worldwide.” http://projecthealthychildren.org


“Provides free and cost-effective health care services to Nepal’s rural poor in partnership with government medical programs. A $100 donation would provide high-quality, low-cost healthcare for four children through Possible’s medical programs.” http://possiblehealth.org


“School lunch programs keep children nourished and encourage them to stay enrolled in school. A $100 donation to Oxfam could provide school lunches for two children for an entire year.”

“Since the 2015 Nepal earthquake, Oxfam has been actively working to provide 60,000 displaced people with access to clean water and emergency toilets across seven regions.” https://www.oxfam.org

Against Malaria Foundation

Bed nets are the most effective way to prevent malaria in children, who account for 78 percent of malaria-related deaths. The Against Malaria Foundation distributes nets for as little as $4 per net. “https://www.againstmalaria.com/Default.aspx

Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition

Iodine deficiency is the leading cause of preventable brain damage in children. The Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition brings iodine to billions across the globe, ensuring that each child reaches her full cognitive potential.”

“The Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition runs cost-effective programs to add iodine to a common household food—table salt—providing hundreds of thousands of people with this vital nutrient.” http://www.gainhealth.org

One Acre Fund

More than 60 percent of people living in the Horn of Africa rely on subsistence farming to support their families, but one in four people in the region do not have sufficient food and nutrition. One Acre Fund reduces hunger in agricultural communities in East Africa by helping small farmers improve harvests and maximize farm profits.”

“One Acre Fund brings economic opportunity to rural agricultural communities in East Africa by helping small farmers improve harvests and maximize farm profits. In 2014, One Acre Fund’s farmers gained more than $7 million in net farm revenue.”https://www.oneacrefund.org

Population Services International’s

 “WASH program (water, sanitation, and hygiene) brings clean water supplies to families in 30 countries. To date, PSI has averted more than 30 million cases of diarrhea caused by water-born illnesses.”

“For girls who drop out of school, studies show that pregnancy is the reason in more than 50 percent of cases. Population Services International’s family planning programs empower girls to reach their full educational potential.” http://www.psi.org


 “We are committed to reversing the degradation of our planet’s natural environment and to building a future in which human needs are met in harmony with nature. We recognize the critical relevance of human numbers, poverty and consumption patterns to meeting these goals.” https://www.worldwildlife.org

Wild Life Society

The Wildlife Conservation Society saves wildlife and wild lands through careful science, international conservation, education, and the management of the world’s largest system of urban wildlife parks”

National Wildlife Federation

National Wildlife Federation works closely with those who span the social and political spectrum, but who are connected by a common commitment to conservation. Our ability to meet the needs of wildlife is inextricably linked to the amazing individuals, groups, organizations and corporations we call our supporters. Together, we form a pack, leveraging our influence to safeguard America’s wildlife and wild places.” http://www.nwf.org

The Audubon Society


The Audubon Society’s mission is to conserve and restore natural ecosystems, focusing on birds, other wildlife, and their habitats for the benefit of humanity and the earth’s biological diversity” http://www.audubon.org
