Chat about a topic supported by books, TED Talks, podcasts, personal experience, philosophies of mankind mingled with humor (shout out to IOT), and maybe we’ll even do a google hangout or conference call once a month.

What Charities Do You Support

Post by Just This Guy » Thu Nov 04, 2021 9:18 am

We had a thread about what people do when they stopped paying tithing and several people stated they support various new charities now. I want to start a tread where people can talk about the charities and non-profits that they support and provide information if anyone else wants to support them as well. So please feel free to talk up some of the charities that you like.

Tell us about the charities you support. How do they help the community? How can we help them out?

I would recommend that they be 501(c)(3) registered charities in the US or the local equivalent for other countries for charitable organizations.

God is Love. God is Truth. The greatest problem with organized religion is that the organization becomes god, rather than a means of serving God.

They will keep people from freezing to death on the streets again this year. What a worthwhile group!
Good faith does not require evidence, but it also does not turn a blind eye to that evidence. Otherwise, it becomes misplaced faith.

We donated to the Utah Food Bank this month.

My older kid pulled up their website and a charity rating website and told us all about how almost all of the money goes to getting food to people so it is a good charity.
