It is a Good thing to "give back" or to donate when you can, but please include necessary research to provide prospective donors, so that they know they are donating to legitimate charities. There are several organizations that provide this important information on national charitable groups, such as give.org, which is the Wise Giving Alliance, an arm of the Better Business Bureau. WGA holds charitiable groups accountable with 20 standards. In some cases, charitable groups do not wish to be forthcoming with the information necessary to determine whether or not they can be trusted; isn't that information that would be beneficial? Also, there are groups in your community that have needs; do a bit of research and donate closer to home, if you feel comfortable doing so. A little preparation will assure that your donation(s) are going to the right place(s). Best wishes!
