    Let's see, I know:

    Firefighters Charitable Foundation
    Children's Cancer fund of America
    Operation Lookout National Center for Missing Youth
    Police Protective Fund
    National Cancer Coalition
    Find the Children
    Firefighters Assistance Fund
    Hope cancer Fund

    Haven't donated though, because I'm very particular of who I donate to.

    I have heard of several of them. We have gotten calls from a few. We do not donate to charities who call begging. One because we know it is not the actual charity calling and also because I only give money to a couple different groups based on personal experience with them or the cause being personal. No telemarketer will convince me to do otherwise.

    Now I understand why Stupid Cancer posted this morning
    We have publicly released our 2012 tax returns to the public, known as the IRS Form 990. Know where your money goes. Be an informed donor. http://stpdcn.cr/12Jg9P1
    And I do, I have given them my money. And I've benefited from it.

    One that they don't list that I WILL NOT donate money to is Susan G. Komen. If I see any product that is pink or says "for the cure" I avoid it like the plague. Nope nope nope.

    Malfoy can certainly speak for herself - but since I agree with her . . . .

    Here's a blog with some information:

    Komen Foundation circling the drain? Good riddance, and good news for cancer research | Scholars and Rogues

    My understanding is that they've placed a lot of focus on marketing (turning America pink every October) but have lost focus on their core mission.

    St. Jude's
    Toys for Tots
    The local Food Shelf
    Salvation Army

    Those are the ones I have a tendency to stick to.
