My Favorite Charities

Posted By Jim On 12/01/2007 @ 11:10 am In Personal Finance | 4 Comments

NCN asked for everyone to name their favorite charity [3] 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 [4] 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 [5] 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 [6], 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 [7] is a great place to compare them.
