My Favorite Charities

Email  Print Print  

NCN asked for everyone to name their favorite charity and it was difficult to choose only one so I’m going to list all the ones I support on any significant level.

Make A Wish Foundation – I’d known about them before my friend Scott started doing his Charitable Ghent Bar Tours down in Norfolk, VA and always thought their mission was very admirable. My friend Scott has been running a bar tour for a few years that has raised a significant amount for the Make A Wish Foundation and I was happy to play a small part in that. This year marks the first year in which they’ll be doing a pub crawl in downtown Norfolk, this time for benefit of the ALS Association.

American Cancer Society – I don’t really have much I can say about this other than I support the work that they do and hope that everyone recognizes that cancer is a disease that affects everyone. Under the simple premise that cancer develops after a cell replication/mutation goes horribly wrong, you can see how no one is safe unless we figure out a cure for this.

There are a few more that we support as well but those I believe are the big two. If you’re looking for a charity to support, Charity Navigator is a great place to compare them.

    I’m a big supporter of Compassion International. It’s really fun to get letters from the Child in Africa that I sponsor. I definitely recommend it to anyone, and it’s only $30 a month.

    I’ve been a big supporter of the Salk Institute for many years now mainly because I agree with their approaches towards science. I also give the American Cancer Society annually.

    I usually try to split my charitable contributions about 50/50 between national charities such as the above and local charities such as shelter and food banks.

    I recommend the Lupus Foundation of America. Lupus research is so seriously underfunded that there has not been a new treatment of this devistating disease in over 40 years.
