Off the top of my head, Fiance just worked on a project for Bread for the World (religious-based, collective) and came across many kids in Haiti and Africa through that. Its aim is to end hunger, which of course affects children in a big way.

Also, to find out about charities or to compare them try going here: http://www.charitynavigator.org/

Prevent Child Abuse America was my sorority’s philanthropy so I’ve stuck with that, its one you could check out.

CARE works with women and girls around the world and works for women’s empowerment.  They’re an amazing charity!

St. Jude children’s hospital. No child is ever turned away for inability to pay. Or your local children’s hospital. Maybe you can buy books or toys for the playroom?

If you want something really tangible and local to you – maybe you could contact a local public school and donate needed art supplies for the classrooms, or books for the library?

Or, donate boxes of new toiletry items (soap, toothbrushes, mini bottles of shampoo, etc.) to domestic violence shelters, or to a transitional housing organization that gets mothers/children into homes instead of homeless shelters.

Another thought is to donate to your local Ronald McDonald house. I would imagine they can always use nonperishable food, laundry items, blankets/towels for people staying there, and toiletry items.

@hilsy85: I am a partner in hope. We give every month. They say something like “give thanks for the healthy kids in your life and give for those who are not.”
