Helping Those In Need

This is not to ignore the fact that there are many people in need in every community. There are always many ways to help in your own town. But for those of us who see the needs in other places, these are some ways to donate overseas. Since this list is far from exhaustive, if you know of other reliable organizations or individuals, please leave a comment. And please remember that you need to check all of these out yourself to make sure they are reliable. I can't make any promises, although I am comfortable with these.

Here are some of the ones we keep listed on our website:
www.worldonfire.ca
www.ecpatusa.org/
http://www.phrusa.org/campaigns/aids/
http://www.heifer.org/
http://www.care.org/index.asp?source=170545040000

http://www.polarisproject.org/polarisproject/
http://www.lib.msu.edu/harris23/crimjust/human.htm
http://www.projecthope.org

I'd also add:
Roof.org--although I think they take too much overhead when donating book money--and I think save the children is the absolute worst for overhead!
These sites seem good though:
