    Charity

    I'm looking for a charity to support. Please make recommendations of charities helping people (not Ozzy, Bugweed or PAK). My wife and I currently contribute to Save the Children. I'm looking for charities that help people help themselves with sustainable and renewable resources--things like micro lending, providing animals, crops, education etc.
    My chicken legs taste like chicken--only less meaty.

    if you guys have an Optimist Club locally they are about the best bang per buck in helping kids but they arent quite where your looking for(the local one here, which im a member of, could use a Shuga Daddy )

    not sure who does the sorta work your looking at...............im just familiar with the ones like the Elks, Optimists, Lions, ect..................

    SAINT JUDE CHILDRENS RESEARCH HOSPITAL!

    St. Jude's does incredible work for children with cancer. They take anyone...regardless of ability to pay. They pay for all the treatment PLUS housing for families so they don't have to be split up while a child is in treatment. They have made HUGE advancements in cancer treatment, with some children's cancers having an almost 90% cure rate--a rate unheard of a decade or so ago. They exist solely by DONATION. So they need money in order to maintain the free-treatment-for-everyone policy.

    St. Jude's has given MANY families their children back...kids who would not have survived if it weren't for the research, diligence and caring there.

    Oh...I guess that's not a "people helping people" type of charity. But if I ever win the lottery, I'm giving a HUUUGE chunk o' money to St. Jude's. Its an absolutely amazing place. I make little donations but...not what I would if I could...

    Can you just imagine what it would be like to be told your 2-year-old has CANCER?
