Does anyone here regularly donate money to charity?

What's a worthy cause that will help Americans in some way, and not go towards "philanthropists" salary's?

Look into your local homeless shelters (there are diff types...some work at ending homelessness through education/skill development, etc).

Habitat for Humanity - the people that receive the home actually pay for it and work to help build it.  I think they have to work on it like 250 hours or something like that so they feel really invested in it.  They pay for the home at 0% interest I think ...but they still pay for it.

Boys and Girls Clubs - provide needed supervision and services and even meals etc for at risk kids.  

Like Migs said - local children's hospitals & food banks

The Smile Train - provides kid's w/cleft lips surgery to fix...these wouldn't be all Americans though.

 

I've heard giving to the United Way results in only pennies on the dollar go to helping others.  Haven't looked into that in a long while though.

I think the best way to go is local like others have said check out childrens charities the larger the charity i would think the bigger the chunk will get lost in the buerocratic process within the company. Charities for families of soldiers who have died in iraq and afghanistan are also good. The wounded warrior project is another good one or shoot man not quite as notable but in the vein of our common thread. Funds that help soldiers oversees get supplements to assist in their workout routines. I have a buddy who was a firefighter in iraq and he always emailed me saying how they cant get crap over there.

Honestly though if you really want to help volunteer bro at a local charity these places are generally understaffed and depend alot on volunteers.

I regularly donate to Feed My Starving Children (www.FMSC.org) with every purchase I make.
It feeds a starving child for a week. Infact, in many cases, not only does it feed a starving child for a week,
each online purchase can also simultaneously support many worthwhile non-profit organizations as well.

In this economic crisis, many charities and non-profits have been absolutely devastated. Supporters are cutting back on the level of support given, ...in many cases, former supporters are now turning to these very same organizations for help. An innovative and visionary approach to e-Commerce, has emerged that can meet the needs of both consumers looking for value, while empowering them to make a difference. Non-profits no longer have to beg supporters for money. Consumers no longer have to choose between doing without, and supporting their favourite charity. They can now feed a number of birds with one worm. Consumers can now purchase the things they're currently buying, have it delivered directly to their doors, and at the same time, receive the lowest prices on their everyday purchases, getting the best value, and knowing that with each purchase made, their favourite charity will be supported, AND a child will be fed for a week.
