Well, I am a giver. I try to pick charities that help people help themselves because their is nothing more frustrating to me than someone being poor and the person not wanting to help themselves build their lives up again, some just want others to pay their way. So I have picked a womans shelter that I donate to a couple of times a year and each time I donate to the shelter I pick a different theme to make up for the basket. Recently I made up a big basket of travel size deodorants, shampoos, toothbrushes..ect. For mothers day I will be giving these women sponges, soaps, body sprays, flip flops and sunblocks. Alittle something to help theme feel fresh and clean and be safe in the sun for spring and summer.
I like to give to women because I am a woman and I it must be hard on these women especially those who have children. I just want to help make their lives a bit easier.
Very thoughtful. It would make a nice Hub. How to Help Women in Crisis" kinda thing.
that's very generous and thoughtful. I like the effort you put into a theme! you could write a series of hubs about helping women as was suggested and share some of your experiences.
especially now when people are doing spring cleaning, knowing where to donate can help!
Welcome, and congrats we could use more generous people like yourself. Thank You.
I am an area coordinator for a national children's charity and need to let any potential donor know....don't donate clothes or blankets to most rescue missions, they simply sell them in their thrift store. Ask them their policy if not sure. If they do not give directly to the people in need: Please, please, make an effort to find the homeless people in your area and give the items directly to them so that those in need actually get the item. If you do not have the time or stomach necessary to do this, try to find a group that does. There are homeless advocates in most communities. Try churches, civic clubs, etc. Most of all know that something that may seem small to you can brighten the life of a person in need.
Good hub here. I typically give my donations directly to the ones in need if I do not trust a local organization. That way I know I am really helping someone. I could not imagine being a homeless woman with a child. That must be so hard on the mother.
There are many ways to help woman in need. If you have an old working car that is no longer in use, donate it. Besides helping others, there are tax advantages in this donation.

I have tried to search a Bible verse that says God will only help those who help themselves but I have never found such a verse. Do you believe that God will help those who only help themselves? Explain your answer.

I've just completed a hub on what valentines day gifts for what women really want. Looking into a man's perspective, I don't think they really have a clue! So, thought that a discussion on this would be really helpful...So what do you think women really want?

I wrote a review of the recent Ayn Rand movie, Atlas Shrugged Part 1. And it got me to wondering why people like Ayn Rand in the first place. The review is here, for anyone who is interested. <link removed>If you're an Ayn Rand fan, why do you like her? If not, why do you think that people in...

Is a society dependent on altruism sustainable?To what extent should government intervene to ensure there is a balance between opportunity for individual success and providing systems of care and support for those who can't help themselves?
