My vote's for the Wounded Warrior fund!! Those guys are REAL hero's and they come home disabled and unable to support there families, often waiting years for any support from the Gov they proudly and selflessly risk their live's to serve!! My hat is off to all who serve!!

Donate your time...Big Brothers Big Sisters. Pass on your knowledge and guidance to an underpriveledged youth in your community. I don't have much spare cash, but try to give to my community in other ways. I've been doin it for years...

How about donating a percentage of proceeds from my first childrens book to the American Heart Association?

have like 2-3 annual fund raisers. the money would be put in a bank checking account....lets say u rise a million dollars (just throwing out a number) , put it in a cheacking called the get bulk foundation... now every year that account will gain intrest... so every year u can do cool stuff, like buy ppl houses or medical help...or to do as ur charity board members wish..so instead of just helping one time... you will be helping ppl even after we are long gone...thats what i would wana do......sooooo is this a contest or what?

I would mostly likely want to give to any organization that are trying to defeat things like Cancer and STDs...but sadly those are the once that seem to show the least amount of progress...at all... Like literally 0%
So I guess something like American Heart Association seems a lot more worth the donation, since by the looks of all medications and things you can do it seems like something that actually is going anywhere...

That's why there have been ZERO advances in these areas. Give you a shoot that cures you and say charge $100,000 for that? Compared to keeping you alive (barely) for ten years and the treatments costing nearly that much annually? Come on this is America and the sad fact is, if it don't make dollars-it don't make sense.........................

I do a March of Dimes 3 miles fundraising walk each yr. in the spring. Just did my third this yr. and it's a good feeling to be helping ppl. out. You'd be surprised how much you can raise this way.
It's a good cause as it seeks to help the most innocent among us (babies) to be born healthy and not at a premature date.

Muscular Dystrophy and Cancer.
My fiance is a nurse at a critical care hospital on the pediatrics floor. She has come home in tears, saddened by the wrath these two have had on kids - (3mo-22yr)
Along with what psulifter stated, donating money isn't the only thing. Go to a childrens' hospital and play with the kids (video games, drawing pictures, tea parties), donate used toys, and even clothing. Some kids never get a chance to go to the school dance, or even worse - get married to their childhood sweetheart while in the oncology floor, knowing he/she will only live for 2 more weeks!
