Any Charities Taking Donations For The Gulf?

    ryankettposted 7 years ago

    I have, rather unintentionally, made a little money from one of my several oil related hubs.

    Clearly I don't want to profit directly from an environmental disaster, so I was wondering whether anybody could recommend a charity which is heavily involved in the clean up. If you could suggest a decent one I will forward the cash when I recieve my next AdSense cheque...

    I don't know anything about American charities, hence this thread. I am not talking a great deal of money, about $20 so far, but clearly I don't know how long this stuff will last..... I could earn a few more $20's yet...

    Thanks in advance...

      I will say - good intention, Ryan - but will warn you that there are plenty of opportunistic scammers out there.  Be careful with your money and verify you're not getting taken advantage of.

    Any ideas? If not I will just give it to Greenpeace.

    One of my recent hubs lists a bunch of options. Scroll down to roughly the middle of the page:

    Cheers guys, I will check them both out and choose one.

    Amazon earnings don't count though tongue

    I hope that the hub doesn't earn for too long, the sooner they hit 0 page views the better really.

    With 1 in 5 children under the age of 5 living below the poverty level in the United States it should be too hard to find a local organization in your community that would be willing to relieve you of your windfall.

    I think this little girl was television.  I can't vouch for her, but the "Audubon factor" (a BBB accredited group) suggests her project is worth mentioning here.  (There's a link to the Audubon's website for donations in any amount.)
