I donate clothing and other goods to the Salvation Army and Goodwill. I think both of these organizations do a good job of redistributing items to those in need.
Yep, Salvation Army and Goodwill here too. Seems most of the others have had corruption probs at the top.
What a great question. I do donate to Salvation Army, but there are two small non-profit organizations (not national names or brands) ....one help women and women with children with housing and employment....the women are homeless for various reasons....isssues from forecloser to divorce and need a place to live. They are allow 1 to 3 months and while there they are helped with everything from how to dress for an interview, how to conduct yourself in an interview to what to say. They very often need the proper clothing, clothing for their children and school supplies, etc. This is a small organization with a very small budget that is doing so much good. The other organization is a ministry (local) that serve both men and women with children....they also keep families together instead of separating them as they help them find housing and jobs...they need all the things I listed above and also ask for donating in household goods i.e towels, dishes, some furniture to help give the family a way to get started or re-started.
I love these two organizations and have volunteered from time to time, especially helping with fundraising.
We live in a very small town so no Salvation Army or Goodwill. We do have a Community Thrift store and I give all my clothing and other items to them.
I usually donate to the Vietnam Vets. This organization seems to be very good and their CEO doesn't make an outrageous salary, as compared to some of the other well known charities. My husband is a Vietnam vet also. I have given women's clothing to Hubbard House also, which is a place in my city that provides a safe haven for abused women and children.
Battered Women's Shelter;
Hospice Treasure Chest;
Under Serviced Youth Scholarships.
Blessings for all the good you do in the world! Earth Angel!
I donate each year to Goodwill and Salvation Army. I also donate furniture and household goods to Habitat for Humanity. They are great at picking up large items and the tax credit helps when income tax reporting comes around.
donate clothes to" Missionaries of Charity" setup by Mother Teresa and an organisation which takes care of the dying destitutes it picks from the streets of Delhi and nurses back to health or lets them die with dignity.
I also donate money regularly "Gamru village school" a school set up in a remote part of India providing free education to children whose parents are daily wage laborers and do not at times even have a meal to eat, what to talk of a house to live.I try my best to fund their midday meal program as the nutritious meal is the biggest reason children come to school there.The school currently has about 150 children.

Is it cancer research or feeding children that most empowers you through donating to their causes? Please pick one or two that are important to you and possibly why.

My message isn't really about saving money or stretching the dollar, it's about being a bargain hunter. I enjoy finding good deals on clothing and other items for a couple bucks. It's like going treasure hunting, and...
