Default Your Favorite Non-Profit

After a recent discussion, I became curious about donations to non-profits. Which one would you donate a chunk of money to? Family and friends do not count.

St Jude's is one of my favorites!

I knew a fella who donated 1.3 million to the Moose Club in PA... a year later he stopped in for a beer and they didn't even know who he was .,.

Cancer Research of any kind. Sadly research numbers will be skewed due to many had a Covid death, instead of stage 4 metastasized to multiple organs. Hopefully research will have a better chance of realigning numbers

Some Cancer type charities are not really a charity they take most of the money they collect for expenses.

A friend of mine has his own non-profit called the Cohort of Disembodied Artists. COHORT OF DISEMBODIED ARTISTS – SUPPORTING ARTISTS WHO USE ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGIES It supports people who use assistive technologies to make art. He is one of those people. He has ALS, and has had no voluntary muscle function for years. He lives at home with 24/7 professional nursing staff, and communicates via a special technology called an eyewriter that interacts with a computer suspended from the ceiling so he can see it while being 100% bedridden.

He makes most of his art exclusively via the computer and he's amazingly gifted. I met him and his girlfriend (now his wife) in my college dorm my second year at Emerson. He wasn't diagnosed until a decade or so after that.

If I could afford to buy a dozen of his art pieces, I would. As it is, I did a fundraiser via Facebook last year and raised around $1500 total.

Local animal rescues. These organizations survive on the generous support of the communities they are in.

I only donate to those where at a minimum 90 percent goes to that cause.

St Judes
Salvation Army
Fisher House.

Maybe Purple Heart, but they were slipping on the percentage, need to check again on them.
