Check Out the Charitable Matchmakers

With so many worthy charities and causes in need of donations, it can be a challenge to find the right one for you. That’s where GlobalGiving comes in, the brainchild of Mari Kuraishi and Dennis Whittle.

Here’s how it works: Go to the GlobalGiving and browse current projects based on the country, interest, or cause you want to support. Once you select the project you want to donate to, you’ll find detailed information on what your support will provide. For example, those with a passion for primates might want to help the Jane Goodall Institute’s Tchimpounga Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Center feed orphaned chimpanzees. Or you might want to support HIV treatment for 200 children in Zimbabwe through Rozaria Memorial Trust or stop homophobic bullying in schools by donating to the Creating Bias-Free Classrooms teacher-training program.

No matter what your charitable passion is, GlobalGiving makes it easy for you to find the right project to match. And while the act of giving is simplified through GlobalGiving’s easy-to-use website, Mari and Dennis have also made sure that your philanthropic experience is personalized and rewarding. You’ll get regular updates on how your contribution is making a difference and 85 percent of your donation is guaranteed to be put into action within 60 days. You even have the option of making that figure 100 percent if you want to cover GlobalGiving’s 15 percent fee.

Log on to GlobalGiving’s website today to find your perfect charitable match. It just might be love at first sight!

thanks - heres another charity that is of interest because of this statement in their online shop:

"everything we sell goes to support humanitarian activities around the world. And since it is all run by volunteers who really work for no pay, that means even more of your money goes towards doing good."
